Rosso Antonello Sicilian IGT Red Wine 2017 - Hauner.
The Hauner farm, located in the beautiful Mediterranean island of Salina, bears the name of the founder Carlo Hauner, painter and designer from Brescia who landed on the island in 1963 and fell in love with it and decided to move and enjoy the wonderful views that only these uncontaminated territories could give away. His passion for wine brought him in a short time to recover and spread some vineyards, bringing the Malvasia delle Lipari natural and passive Doc, an exceptional wine, already highly appreciated in antiquity, as well as an excellent selection of white and red wines.
Red wine, still and dry, is obtained from Calabrese (Nero d'Avola), Sangiovese and Corinto Nero, grapes grown in the vineyards of the Aeolian islands and harvested only after effective confirmation of the degree of ripeness, a long maceration on the skins and aged 9 months bottled.
Ruby red in color with garnet flashes, a dense and bright color. The nose expresses a character of good broad breed and rich in sensations ranging from small ripe red fruit, blackberries and blueberries, to a light spice of vanilla and cardamom that harmonizes with mineral notes of graphite and gunpowder. The taste is rich and enveloping velvety to the softness still leaves room for round and delicate tannins.
Excellent already now, able to amaze in the years to come.
