A blend of Nero d'Avola and Frappato, this opens with heady aromas of cut rose, red berry and dark spice. The round, simple palate doles out juicy Maresca cherry, crushed raspberry and a note of white pepper alongside silky, smooth tannins. There's no complexity but it is easy drinking and delicious.
