Variety: Sangiovese 100%

Ruby red with garnet shades.

The nose impresses favorably, with aromas of cherry, black cherry and flowers. Oriental winds follow with spices, leather and hints of orange peel. Then aromatic herbs and Mediterranean scrub. Vibrant and clean, it has aromas that are both classic and unusual.

On the palate it is in perfect balance between the parts. The hardness part is excellent, with a firm and durable structure. On the same level the narration of softness, with volume and considerable depth. The sip is copious and enveloping, balanced and in harmony. The aromas emanating from the palate are of fruit, cinchona and spices.

Overall, it is surprising for its ability to remain close to its variety, namely Sangiovese, but at the same time it takes on the best of the Etna terroir. Great Sicilian red wine.
