Ships today if ordered within 7 hrs 20 mins

Rose, violet, pomegranate and smoky notes of the Nerello Mascalese marry beautifully with the bright, fresh fruits of the Granaccia. Delightfully mineral with an uplifting acidity, this wine is transcendent, bringing those who enjoy it to the historic vineyard of Tartaraci. The Granaccia, which softens the acidity of the Nerello Mascalese, also gives the wine a plump ripeness.

Red Blends Wines

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.

A chemist by profession and intuition, Mirella Buscemi, was born near Siracusa. Inspired initially by her grandparents, who owned vines & made wine, Mirella fell in love with Etna. She owns a property of 3.6 hectares, which includes a single 1.5-hectar vineyard of old vines in the contrada of Tartaraci, near the southern volcanic town of Bronte, Etna.

The Tartaraci plot was given to Admiral Horatio Nelson, the former Duke of Bronte, on October 10, 1799 in recognition of his role in defending the island of Sicily from Napoleon Bonaparte and the “dastardly” French who at that time were trying to annex the Bourbon south of Italy.

Mirella Buscemi is married to the award-winning northern Etna winemaker, Alberto Graci.
