James Suckling Review
Rated 93 Points
Sweet and sour-cherry with walnut and toasted-oak aromas that follow through to a full body with juicy fruit and chewy tannin on the palate. Savory. Smoky meat at the end with lovely fruit. Drink now or hold.
Wine Tasting Notes
Intense ruby red color. The bouquet exhibits a great balance between the floral notes where the orange peel is well integrated with spiced notes of indian herbs. On the palate it is fresh, complex and persistent. The acidic components are significant and gives the wine a long life in bottle.
100% Nero d'Avola. Alcohol 14%
