The wine Scilio Etna Rosso DOC is a Sicilian wine; is a blend of two red grape indigenous to Sicily - 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio - grown anywhere else in the world. Members of Scilio family have cultivated these varieties for the last five generations in Galfina Valley on the north-eastern slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily, the largest island off the tip of Italy's boot. According to the New York Times, "Despite regular smoke, ash and lava flows, Etna is one of the most interesting wine regions and remarkable in Italy. This is because a legacy of eruptions has left abundant deposits of rocky volcanic soils, gender easy drainage, poor land of nutrients, which can be so favorable to good wine. "
