this Grand Cru of the Furnari hills the dream of the CAMBRIA company
has become reality: to revive the real Nocera of the Mastronicola
estate, a fine grape variety which was Julius Caesar’s favourite.
during one of his walks along the estates, noticed a vine different
from the others, pretty flavouring and delicious. He decided to let
analyse it and then discovered that it was a grape variety called
NOCERA. He let certificate it and later the plants of this renowned
grape variety for 2000 years old were re-planted in the sixties. From
some important journalists of the wine sector, Nino today is defined
the «father» of the Nocera.

autochthonous vine of the Messina district, associated with the
“Mamertinum” wine which was noted by the ancient Latins. In the
vineyards of Messina, you can find very ancient strains of Nocera.
Nocera was introduced
the mid-800s in France, Provence and Beaujolais, where it was
distributed under the names of “Extrafertile Suquet” and “Barbe
du Sultan” (Mas and Pulliat, 1879).

from cuneiform to pentagonal shape; the medium cluster,
cylindrical-conical, simple or winged, medium berries, short
ellipsoidal, consistent skin of bluish black color. Grapes have an
Anthocyanin profile, characterized by a strong presence of Malvidina
and a very low percentage of Cyanidin.
the aromatic point of view varietal compounds are very interesting,
with a particularly high concentration in terpenes, the content in
Norisoprenoids closely associated with the synthesis of carotene.
of the wine
wine essentially reflects to the Nocera varietal characteristics, in
the Anthocyanin profile the presence of Malvidina becomes very
consistent (85%), but the other Antocians decrease. The aromatic
framework shows a clear chemical evolution of the wine but at the
same time it is interesting to disclose the terpene contribution,
which begins to make a big difference when we find Linalol, Geraniol
and Citronellol produced by the yeast.

and unique product of their kind, only available in limited editions.
