A wine’s finest ingredient is the honesty of the man who produces it.

Nerello Cappuccio

Nerello Cappuccio or Mantellato, (Mantiddatu Niuru or Niureddu Ammatiddatu in Sicilian), a native varietal of the Etna region, owes its name (hooded, cloaked) to the particular look of the bush-trained plant. Of unknown origin, it seems to have been around forever, in small quantities, in the vineyards of Mt. Etna and other Sicilian areas. Over the last few decades it has become increasingly abandoned by growers to the point where it risked extinction.

It is a component, along with the Nerello Mascalese, of Etna Rosso D.O.C. wine, and, along with the Nocera, Nerello Mascalese and other minor varietals, it is used in the production of Faro D.O.C. in Messina.

Vinified in purity it produces wines that can be drunk young. Just like the Nerello Mascalese it is harvested very late, in mid-October.
