Produced in north eastern Sicily in the historical Mamertino di Milazzo region, this wine is an ancient red blend of two indigenous grape varieties - Nero d'Avola and Nocera. Nocera is actually so rare that it cannot be found anywhere else in the world! Some historians claim that the red wines of Mamertino were served to Julius Caesar and Pliny the Elder, making this region one of the oldest wine growing regions in all of Italy.

Ruby red in color, this 2013 blend of 90% Nero d'Avola and 10% Nocera opens with a charming bouquet of dark berries, cherries, and cocoa. The palate offers fruity undertones, soft tannins, and a nice balance of complexity and elegance.
