55% Nerello Mascalese, 25% Nerello Cappuccio, 10% Nocera and 10% Nero
d’Avola. The grapes are harvested in mid to late September and, after a
long maceration on the skins, the wine is aged in French oak for 9 to 12 months
and then in the bottle for 12 months. Dark ruby with an intense nose rich
in dark berry fruit with hints of blood orange, iron, plum, fruitcake and bitter
chocolate. The palate is full bodied but fresh with solid tannins wrapped in
ripe velvety fruit.
