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.
