More information on wine critics and ratings
A denomination rooted in antiquity when the Mamertini produced this wine, described by Pliny and beloved by Julius Caesar, at Milazzo.
Nero d’Avola and Nocera, 12 months of maturation in 35 hl barrels. The small winery stands a short distance from the sea and surrounded by the spectacular vines we have planted at Capo Milazzo.
The Fondazione Barone Lucifero, proprietor of the land, uses part of the income for social, cultural and recreational activities for children in the Milazzo area.

Robert Parker (RP) : 90+ Points (2017)
The 2017 Mamertino is a unique wine that represents a DOC wine appellation in Milazzo (in the northern tip of Sicily) that gets very little use as far as I can tell. The traditional blend is Nero d'Avola and Nocera, and the wine is easy in approach and execution. There's nothing too complicated here—just fresh cherry and blackberry followed by earthy tones and some subtle mineral or sea breeze nuances.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2015)
This elegant version is finely balanced and medium-bodied, with delicately woven flavors of crushed mulberry, black licorice, dried fig and dried sage, backed by supple tannins. Nero d'Avola and Nocera. Drink now through 2025. 1,400 cases made.

This is a red wine of great density, structure and balance, produced in limited quantity from selected vineyards. Burdese is a splendid wine for aging that offers a complexity of aromas and flavours, a product of the Sicilian sun

Tasting Note: Vibrant Sicilian white wine from volcanic soil, rounded, fruity and perfumed with yellow plums, white stone fruit and herbs.

Food Matching: A white wine for all seasons. Good as an aperitif, but excellent with starters based on fish and pasta.

Vinification: The grapes are picked into crates and are at once refrigerated at 8°C. After light crushing and destemming they are soft pressed. The decanted must is racked and inoculated with yeasts then ferments at 15°C for 20 days. The wine thus obtained remains on the lees until February with continuous mixing. 10% of the must is fermented in barriques. The wine is then matured in stainless steel tanks and Allier oak 225 litre barriques.

The history of Etna is studded with the historic eruptions which have shaped it. The legendary one of 1614, lasting ten years and the longest ever recorded, halted right on the border of the vineyards of Sciaranuova. A strongly evocative name for our Cru dell’Etna based on Nerello Mascalese. High black lands confer an elegant style, refined and balanced.

A rare and exclusive grape variety cultivated on only a few hectares, it is best expressed in the red sands of Vittoria, not far from the sea. An aromatic and pleasant red wine as few others, a perfect synthesis between tradition and innovation.
