Hierà 2019 IGP Sicilian Red Wine - 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.

Warm and sunny character lends itself to drinking with long harmonius lingering flavor on the palate.
