This cru wine is dedicated to the Musmeci family, in particular Mr. Musmeci, who, for so many years, has taken care of the vineyards ("I vigne di Fessina") with so much love that today the winery is able to cultivate 80 year old vines. This wine is made from a blend of 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio from the oldest vines, grown on the highest hills.
Il Musmeci is a concentrated dark ruby with clear and mature fruity notes, a marked minerality and incomparable vitality. It has fresh, clear and enticing floral and spice aromas, and on the palate is full of sweetness with hints of oak. Strong and ausere yet integrated tannins lead to an enjoyable finish.
Best served with roast lamb, game or semi-mature cheeses.
