Aromas of Cherry earth and mineral. Barely medium weight on the palate with light Tannins. These wines are designed to be drunk from vintage to about 5 years. No point in further cellaring - a fabulous food wine.

Hard to beat this producer in anything... seriously one of the best Nero d'Avola you can get.

Mid crimson in colour. Nose of cherry and other red fruits. On the palate barely medium weight. More red fruits on the palate with a savoury twist. Fresh and juicy texture with supple fine Tannins. No need for further cellaring. 60% Nero d’Avola, 40% Frappato. Made for food.

If this wine could sing it would fill the air with a brooding, heavy, bass-driven melody with a tenor backing that sneaks in and takes over to finish. Heavy at first, leathery and dark forest, it gradually opens into a more bright and fruit forward drink with red cherry and rich exotic spices. Much more poetic than this description.
