For more than 100 years, the Scammacca del Murgo family has cultivated vines and olives under the fiery gaze of Mount Etna in Sicilia. More than once this active volcano has destroyed vineyard plots and covered their family home under ash—events that would rattle the nerves of even the most daredevil winemakers. Yet for the Scammacca del Murgo clan, it’s just the price one pays for the privilege of growing vines in one of the more dynamic and breathtaking wine regions on earth.

After a long career as a diplomat and Italian Ambassador, Baron Emanuele Scammacca del Murgo took over the family operation founded in the 1860s. He was the first in Mount Etna to create a sparkling wine using methode champenoise with 100% Nerello Mascalese. This has the finesse to stand up next to the finest Champagne!

WE 92: Spanish broom, orchard fruit and pistachio nut are some of the aromas you'll find on this vibrant sparkler. The lively palate offers pear, apple and citrus alongside a silky perlage.
