Winemaker's Notes

Elegant and bodied red wine, its bouquet settles on notes of licorice, cocoa, black currant, berries with a hits of mint.The varieties fuse in fine style. The Cabernet Sauvignon brings great elegance and longevity, thanks to firm and velvety tannins, while Nero d’Avola stands out with fruity (cherry and sour cherry) and spicy notes. Tannat, finally, enhances the fruity component while adding a great polyphenolic structure rich in tannins: a variety ideal for long-ageing wines.

Southern Italy Red

Southern Italy Reds tend to be Full-bodied and have High Acidity

The red wines of Southern Italy do not have a great reputation. The hot climate and old winemaking practices made decades of poor-quality wine.

Recent improvements have started yielding rich wines made mostly from Aglianico and Primitivo. These wines have strong fruit flavors and pair very well with Italian meat dishes.
