Nocera

noceraA sharp, high-tannin red from the Messina area, Nocera was once produced  in much higher volume than it is today. With an optimum acidity and warm,  intense aroma, the Nocera is currently appreciated mainly for its contribution  to the Faro DOC wine, together with the Nerello Mascalese and Cappuccio  varieties.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nerello Cappuccio

 

ner_capNerello Cappuccio, aka Nerello Mantellato, is a grape native to the Etna region of Sicily, and produces a spicy, medium-bodied wine with qualities very similar to the Cabernet Sauvignon. Though sometimes produced in its pure form, the Nerello Cappuccio is more often blended with the Nerello Mascalese in the production of DOC Etna Rosso.
