Tasting notes :


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.
