Colour:Red with a purple and pink hue. Nose:Distinctly fruity, offering strawberries, cherries, figs, ginger and fruit drops. Typical of wines produced in the Vittoria area. Palate:Medium bodied and dry, fruit driven with a supple, long finish. Very fresh and fruity, the tannins are never overpowering.

Strawberries, cherries and figs abound on this fresh and supple snapshot of Mediterranean Island life.

Drink on release and for up to 3 years.

Flavoured dishes such as stewed fish, white meat dishes and soft cheeses.

The grapes were harvested on the 30th September and immediately destemmed and crushed before spending 8 days macerating on the skins. After racking, the wine underwent a full malolactic fermentation in steel tanks before bottling during March of the following year.

Grape: 60% Nero d'Avola & 40% Frappato.
