Made with 40% Nero d'Avola, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, this suggests aromas of toast, espresso, pressed violet and baked plum. The straightforward palate offers dried black cherry, black currant and a hint of cake spice alongside fine-grained but not very persistent tannins. Drink now to capture the remaining fruit.
