Product information :


Syrah is a noble Mediterranean grape variety which gives the best of itself in --

bright dry places like our Sicily.


Because of this we have a great belief in the future of this variety in our island.


From an extraordinary vine, Maroccoli at about 400 metres,

in an unpolluted place,  produces an interpretation of Syrah in a modern key --

while respecting the characteristics of the variety.

Powerful and imposing, this is a wine for long aging.


Tasting notes :


 Sweet oriental spices and a fleeting recall of toasted cocoa accompany the wine in all its tasting processes.

Vinification :


Destalking followed by 21 days on the skins at 25⁰C; after racking, malolactic fermentation follows in --

stainless steel and wood; maturation in barriques for 14 months.
