SUSUCARU® Rosso (ex CONTADINO)

Our entry-level red wine is a field-blend of mostly Nerello Mascalese (85%) with other local varietals from all our vineyards: Nerello Capuccio, Allicante Boushet, Minnella and Uva Francesa. Our Susucaru® Rosso expresses Etna as produced in a more traditional way of blending
different contrada’s as well as different varietals to obtain a fragrant, elegant and fluid wine with structure and personality.
