Benanti 2001 Il Monovitigno Nerello Mascalese (Sicilia)

It takes a certain amount of courage to import an obscure indigenous grape like Nerello Mascalese and expect a foreign market to appreciate it. If you're up for tasting something new, prepare yourself for deep mineral, currant and toasted almond flavors. Although this wine is less complex than the estate's blended wines, it does paint a clear picture of the variety. Imported by Vino Bravo.
