So stunningly delicious! Juicy and mouth-watering, and so on trend -- this is one of those volcanic wines. Aromas and flavours of dark red fruit and spice. Love it! Pair with game meats. This is a robust blend of 70% Nerello Mascalese and 30% Nocera grapes.

Food pairings: beef ribs, turkey, roasted pork, lamb.

Terrific Turkey Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Stunning value in this Sicilian IGT vinified with indigenous varietals. Well balanced, integrated, dusty medium-plus tannins, medium plus acidity and medium alcohol. Medium plus body. Red fruit, balsamic, forest floor, volcanic minerality. Pairs well with roasted chicken or roast pork with rosemary sprigs, or rack of lamb. Decanted 2h. Tasted 2014 vintage in July 2017. 93 points.

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Stunning aromas and flavours of red.berries, herbs and dried flowers, with a hint of spice. 91 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An intense mineral forward Italian red wine blended from offbeat indigenous Nerello Mascalese (deeply coloured & tannic) and Nocera grapes in the Southern Region of Sicily. Aromas showcase a prominent matchstick, minerality and cherry notes. It's got sky high acidity, moderately developed tannins, and a long funky smoky finish. Enjoy with a coffee-rubbed pork tenderloin roast. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A weighty wine with full aromas of berries and leather. Perfect replay on the palate. Finishes with very crisp acidity.
Le Casematte Peloro (2014) is a red wine blend of 70% Nerello Mascalese and 30% Nocera. The Nocera grape is very similar to Nerelli. It was once very widespread and is now reduced to a few hectares here and there, but it is still possible to find very old strains in vineyards planted alongside Nerello Mascalese and other local and international varieties. - Community Wine Reviews
