Based in San Cipirello (Palermo - Italy) and deeply rooted to its own earth, Calatrasi has been driven ever since its foundation by a strong spirit of innovation. Under Maurizio Miccichè's direction a young motivated staff of 45 peoples from all over the world is changing the world of winemaking with an international approach.
Merlot grapes from distinguished dry land sites have made a wine with a strong deep purple colour and lifted plum and spice aromas. The palate starts deep, with dark elegant and spicy flavours. Barrel fermentation has given dimension and texture to the dark cherry fruit and leads to a concentrated and persistent finish.
The wine D'Istinto Syrah Caltrasi shows a brilliant ruby red color and nuances of ruby red, moderate transparency. The nose reveals intense, clean and pleasing aromas which start with hints of black cherry and plum followed by aromas of blackberry, blueberry, violet, black pepper and hints of vanilla.
