Bright light ruby red; striking for its transparency allowing the eye to see through it.

Varietal in color as well as in bouquet where the main theme are red fruits: pomegranate, cherry, currant with wisteria flowers and tiny red roses.

Young and very fresh wine. Fine, elegant and fragrant.
Very light balsamic notes with only an hint of spices: cloves, juniper and a pinch of pepper. To the sip a return of fresh fruit, tasty, balanced and soft finishing with pleasant persistency.

Food pairing:
Excellent opening wine from aperitif to appetizers, great with sliced cured meat and pasta dishes. Buffalo Caprese with beefsteak tomato, oregano from Etna, big leaf basil and last harvest EVO oil. Fish is not a taboo: we suggest baked monkfish with new roasted potatoes and cherry tomatoes.
