It seemed to everyone to be an impossible to improve on what was considered the top of the Sicilian red wines of the new generation. But we have. It is even more intense and with a deep ruby red colour, beautiful notes of mature red fruits, and an underlying hint of spices conferred by these exceptional grapes. The palate notes the caressing elegant tannins that give it a long, warm persistent finish, making it stand out in a word context.
Deep ruby red color.
Beautiful notes of mature red fruits (cherry, strawberry) and hints of spices.
Warm persistent finish.
