It is one of the oldest grape varieties found in Sicily. Grown in the hilly area around Agrigento, it has a very pleasant and harmonious taste and aroma.

A bright red wine, recognizable for fresh and fruity notes of black cherries, blueberries and raspberries. Soft and balanced, this wine is verstile and remarkable also in bold pairings with pizza, also excellent with appetizers and main courses. Recommended serving temperature between 14-16°C.
