This is our humble yet determined challenge to the great wines of the world, a blend of Nero d'Avola grapes, the strong expression of our land, and Cabernet and Merlot grapes evoking the Atlantic coast of France. Vinified and refined separately in small French oak casks, the percentage of the blended grapes varies every year to express always their best.
