"An absolute curiosity, a Sangiovese on Etna. The personality of the great Tuscan grape that interprets this magical territory right from the impenetrable ruby red color. A clear fruity note immediately makes its way to the aromas, ripe red fruit such as black cherry, blackberry, followed by cinchona, licorice, violet and graphite. When tasted, it shows that it has reached an optimal balance, supported by alcohol, velvety softness on the one hand, and noble tannins on the other. Mouth voluminous and slender at the same time thanks to the precious presence of acidity. Very persistent closure. " (Daniela Scrobogna F.I.S)
