Deep colored. Ripe and peppery on the nose. Full and fleshy on the palate. Produced from selected grapes grown in two different vineyards, one near Marsala and the other in central Sicily. The grapes from the former region, normally an area regarded as being cool for Nero d'Avola, have given vibrancy and an aromatic dimension to the wine, while the latter, a hotter, drier zone, provides the color, weight and structure.
