Benuara Cusumano

In the Presti e Pegni estate in Monreale, where a small flower typical of the Mediterranean area grows, Nero d'Avola and Syrah quality grapes are cultivated. Their blending gives life to the Benuara, a wine with a strong body, a winy fragrance with the scent of wild fruits and a full-bodied taste.
