San Marzano Rari Nerello Mascalese Siciliane IGP 2020

San Marzano Rari has a bright ruby red colour that transitions to garnet red at the edges when the glass is held at an angle. Rich aromas of black and morello cherries, blackberries, cinnamon and vanilla spices waft from the glass. The palate emerges as pleasantly dry and grippy before delicately melting into residual sweetness within tis dense texture. Fresh and lively thanks to its high acidity, mineral notes and rich fruity flavours of black currant and plum.

100% Nerello Mascalese. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Sicily. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into limestone soils.

After harvesting, the grapes are immediately taken to the winery for sorting and are carefully broken up.
