Made from very fine Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio from low yeilding vineyards (35 Hl. for Hectare), both young and old. The grapes are macerated until the end of fermentation. The wine then continues it's life in wood until bottled roughly one year after harvest. Even young it is a distinguished wine. Fresh, fragrant, beautifully slender and with a fine grip, it has a natural polish, a stage presence, as it were. And, in aging, as it's weave gathers into rich complexity, it is a wine for gentlemen.
