Description: This elegant pale garnet-red wine, of medium-full body sings of strawberry patch purity, volcanic minerals, and warm Sicilian breezes. Cherry-like background with aromas of violet, carob and wild blackberry. Balanced tannins with a savoury finish.

"A finely meshed red, with round and creamy tannins woven with a subtle streak of smoky mineral. Offers flavors of dried cherry and raspberry fruit, a touch of cured tobacco and accents of ground white pepper and citrus. Lightly chewy on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2026. 3,300 cases made. 91 points" - Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator (October 2018)
