The king of Sicilian varieties, Nero d'Avola, in a voluptuous, full-bodied 50/50 blend with Syrah. Aromas of sour cherries, forest fruits and hints of vanilla. Firm, graceful tannins will allow long-term cellaring. Depth, body and intensity make it an instant favourite. Pairs brilliantly with beef, lamb and rich pasta dishes, as well as dark chocolate desserts.
“Very wide-ranging spectrum of aromas, with notes of sour cherries and forest fruits, together with delicious hints of vanilla. Caressing and spicy, with firm, but graceful tannins.” -- Riccardo Cotarella
