4 /5

I found it at home, can't remember where I bought it.
Cherry colour, high layer. Smells like cedar wood or pine tree. Blueberry flavour.

4/5

It seemed to everyone to be an impossible to improve on what was considered the top of the Sicilian red wines of the new generation. But we have. It is even more intense and with a deep ruby red colour, beautiful notes of mature red fruits, and an underlying hint of spices conferred by these exceptional grapes. The palate notes the caressing elegant tannins that give it a long, warm persistent finish, making it stand out in a word context.

Una perla di enologia, uno dei migliori rossi Siciliani di nuova generazione, dotato di una piacevolezza e di una bevibilità straordinari, ricco di frutto e di eleganza. Laffascinante colore rubino profondo introduce note di ciliegia, fragola, mora lampone di stupefacente bellezza, attraversate e impreziosite da sentori mentolati e speziati. Incede nel palato con classe impareggiabile e si conferma vino di standard mondiale, vellutato, morbido e persistente, dai tannini fitti, carezzevoli e gentili.
