Made with Nero d'Avola and aged in wood, this unusual rosato opens with aromas that recall mature red fruit, cake spice, chopped sage, oak and a balsamic note. The smooth, round palate offers candied red cherry, tangerine zest, toasted almond and a note of candied ginger alongside bright acidity. It has a tutti frutti finish but the overall array of flavors gives it some depth.
