This wine from Sicily is a blend of 70% Nero d'Avola, 20% Syrah and 10% Merlot. Aromas of vanilla buttercream, cedar, cinnamon and clove make one wonder if the fruit has been oaked into submission, but the bright cherry fruit shines on the palate and lingers through the tart, smooth finish.

Quality viticulture and elegant oenology marks Litra, a Cabernet Sauvignon grown on sharply descending buttressed land. Lengthy maceration, aging in French oak barrels. A good refining period in bottles to develop its bouquet. It can be kept bottled for long periods.

A red wine made from a Sicilian grape like the Nero d'Avola and vinified with a small quantity of Merlot grapes left to ripen under the hot Sicilian sun. It has a good maceration and average aging in wood to round its noble tannins, keeping the original fragrance and primary bouquet. A soft, rich and balanced wine which can be aged.
From Inzolia, a native Sicilian grape. The grapes are gently crushed and the must, rich in flavours and bouquets, is fermented at a low temperature to maintain its characteristics and original fragrance. Inzolia has a pleasant light body and fresh, fruity taste.
A white wine obtained mainly from Inzolia, a traditional Sicilian grape, combined with non-native Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, harvested when at a good stage of ripeness and vinified in mixed varieties according to the most up-to-date oenology protocol. A wine full of primary and secondary bouquets. The taste is persistent and full-bodied.
