Quater Vitis Rosso encapsulates wine-rich Sicily in a glass. It is a blend of Nero d’Avola, Perricone and Frappato grapes grown on the Pianoro Cuddìa estate, with Nerello Cappuccio grapes grown on the Cavanera Estate at about 680 metres above sea level on Etna.
Intense and dark ruby red with lively shades of purple.
It affords marvelous and intense hints of cherries soaked in alcohol, blackcurrants and bilberries that alternate with hints of chocolate, pepper, blond tobacco, and cloves set against a balmy and minty backdrop.
Fleshy and dense, it overwhelms the taste buds with sure confidence seducing them with the great fruity body, vibrant and powerful acidity and an array of noble, extremely fine,soft and caressing tannins.
