Expert Review:
James Suckling- 92 points, This has a more modern stance with intense aromas of cherries and hazelnuts, as well as dried flowers. The palate is sheer and has a saturated center palate with bright, rich blueberries and dusty, fine tannins to close. 70% nerello mascalese and 30% granaccia. Drink or hold.

Mirella Buscemi, born near Siracusa was inspired first by her grandparents, and later by Mt Etna and one of the region’s leading producers - Alberto Graci. In 2016 Alberto gifted Mirella, a 1.5 ha, bush-trained, 90-year-old, vineyard in the Contrada of Tartaraci, near Bronte, on the western face of Mt Etna. Situated at 980 m.a.s.l., the Buscemi Tartaraci vineyard is unique, firstly as it is located above the delimited area for the production of DOC Etna wines, and secondly as it is a ‘field blend’ of 70% nerello capuccio & nerello mascalese with 30% granaccia (grenache). Mirella makes her wines at the Graci winery in Arcuria, however they are very much from her own hand. Mirella harvested the vineyard on November 1st, 2016 and the varieties were vinified together in cement tanks prior to 18 months maturation in a combination of cement and a single botte of 10 Hl.
