A blend of 40% Nero d'Avola, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, this opens with aromas of black-skinned fruit, baking spice and Mediterranean scrub. The dense palate delivers black currant, bell pepper and tobacco alongside dusty tannins. You'll also notice the heat of evident alcohol. Drink through 2020.
