A very special wine, made by collaboration between students and professors at Istituto Agraria San Placido Calonerò in the province of Messina in Sicily. Fruit of generations of village winemaking now together with internationally recognized consult and ambitions to share this piece of heart and history with the world.

Cascades like ripe CDP on the mid palate with super turned our dark fruit- at the same time lifted with no heat or alcohol. Awesome...

Enjoyed 7/29/16. After a 30 minute decant this wine reveals nuanced layers of fruit with great complexity.

Caramel and flowers tones add to a fine mouthfeel of black cherry, cocoa, and black pepper. Medium body and tannin. A fine pairing to beef stroganoff.
