In local dialect Burdese means ‘bordolese’ (from Bordeaux) and refers to the classic grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This is a red wine of great density, structure and balance, produced in limited quantity from selected vineyards. Burdese is a splendid wine for aging that offers a complexity of aromas and flavours, a product of the Sicilian sun.
