TASTING NOTES

Color: intense and dark ruby red with lively shades of purple.

Nose: it affords marvelous and intense hints of cherries soaked in alcohol, blackcurrants and bilberries that alternate with hints of chocolate, pepper, blond tobacco, and cloves set against a balmy and minty backdrop.

Palate: fleshy and dense, it overwhelms the taste buds with sure confidence seducing them with the great fruity body, vibrant and powerful acidity and an array of noble, extremely fine, soft and caressing tannins.

Characteristics: the hallmark of a warm and fascinating Mediterranean wine with an regal elegance; so juicy, delightful and smooth that you can almost bite into it; it lingers unceasingly and immaculately; it is a perfect symphony of four of Sicily’s best grapes.
