We are still discussing about the origin of this variety. The only certain thing we can support deals with our Syrah grapes expressing strong character, tempered by the Sicilian sun.
It is deep ruby red in colour, with a rich and mellow bouquet and notes of wild berries in perfect harmony with spicy hints of black pepper and balsamic notes. It has a generous flavour, with a pleasant tannic, velvety and persistent sensation. It goes well with grilled mushrooms, risottos and bean soups.
