''Stylistically Nerello Mascalese falls between Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo in style. Like Pinot Noir it can produce fruit forward elements with a crisp acidity. Aromatically, Nerello Mascalese wines have the distinctive red fruit notes of strawberry, red cherry and raspberry. They can be very floral, and sometimes exhibit the rose petal aroma that Nebbiolo is known for.'' Joseph Micallef, Forbes.com
