Palate: mouthfilling and soft, with great taste profile, thanks to marvelous and intact fruit, masterfully balanced with the lively fresh and dynamic acidity and lavish refined tannins.
Characteristics: for some time it has become a “cult” wine; an extraordinary Sicilian interpretation of the famous Bordeaux blend; rich, juicy, exciting, trepidant, compelling and noble like the marvelous and timeless legend it takes inspiration from.
