"This is richly fruited and enticing with dark berry, cake spice, hazelnut, mocha and dried flower characters on the nose, followed by a generously flavoursome palate displaying plush texture and silky tannins. Soothing and delectably appealing. At its best: now to 2026"
 - Sam Kim, The Wine Orbit

A blend of Syrah 85% Nero d’Avola 15% sourced from organic vineyards on the hills of Petrosino, Sicily up to an altitude of 400m above sea level grown on clay-limestone soils with an average planting density of 4K vines per hectare. The grapes are harvested by hand from the middle of September. Vinification involves destemming and traditional pressing and the grapes are in contact with the skins for 8-14 days. Fermentation takes place in 400 hl tanks at 25 -26°c for 14 days. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation with selected bacteria, 20% is then stored in barrels for 3-6 months, with the remainder in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness.

ABV: 13%
