The 2014 Peloro is a blend of 70% Nerello Mascalese and 30% Nocera, the two principal red grapes that define the province of Messina. This is a wine of great personality that reflects the good cheer of its maker, Gianfranco Sabbatino. Grapes are harvested at a high plateau overlooking the Straights of Messina on the Peloro Cape (the northern-most point of the three-sided island). The bouquet opens to a slight touch of rusticity with some bramble and sharp forest fruit backed by light shadings of rosemary and crushed black pepper. You can't beat that affordable price point.
