This native Sicilian vine, by antonomasia, shines with a new light in this wine which fully embodies all the authentic properties of its fruit. It is a different interpretation of Nero d’Avola that evokes with personality all the aromatic qualities of the island’s most important red grape variety. The unique characteristics of the Dàgala Borromeo estate where this varietal is grown, lend themselves to shaping its modern structure and complex aromatic profile.
Intense ruby red with lively purplish hues along the edges.
It has an impeccable and fragrant fruit of surprising sharpness that reveals a profusion of scents that alternate in recalling plum and blackberries, black cherries and bilberries, cloves, black pepper, liquorice, dark chocolate and humus.
It admirably blends all its power with expressive delicacy revealing a suave depth; it has an assertive character that is well tempered by the silky and delightful tannins; the match between nose and palate is polished and extraordinary.
