Nerello Mascalese 'Bio Vegan' Nicosia 2020

Nerello Mascalese "Bio Vegan" from the Sicilian winery Nicosia is a volcanic and sparkling red wine that tells the story of the land from which it comes. The vineyards are situated on soils composed of volcanic sands and the vinification takes place entirely in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The colour is an intense ruby red with luminous reflections and the aromas released are reminiscent of wild berries, wild flowers and slightly spicy sensations. On the palate it is fresh, dynamic, lively, with dry tannins and a clean finish. Organic Wine

Perfect for young and medium bodied red wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
