A blend of 60% Nero d'Avola, 30% Sangiovese and 10% Corinto, this structured wine opens with fragrances of mature plum, resin and a balsamic note. The dense palate offers chewy tannins and delivers succulent flavors of black cherry and ripe black berry that are layered with black pepper, clove and mocha.
