Made from Nero d'Avola, Perricone and a small percentage of other grape varieties, this full-bodied red opens with intense ripe black-skinned berry, Mediterranean scrub, mint and tobacco aromas. The firm, savory palate offers black cherry jam, mocha, licorice and black pepper flavors framed by fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2025.
