Winemaker's notes:
Coral pink colour, bouquet of flowers and fruit, fresh, soft, deep flavour. This wine comes from a selection of grapes of two traditional Sicilian grape varieties, the nerello mascalese and the perricone. The grapes, picked when they still have a good acidity, are vinified by the rosé method, with a gentle pressing and a short contact of the must with the skins.

The vineyard: selected parcels of vines at between 300 and 400 metres above sea level, trained by the Guyot system on clay soil with limited yields of grapes per hectare.
The vinification: the grapes picked during the first ten days of September when they still have a good acidity, undergo a gentle pressing and the must is left in contact with the skins for several hours. The cold settling of the young must, an addition of selected yeasts and the slow, temperature- controlled fermentation give the product its typical, fruity character.
The wine: bright pink colour, with a fruity, floral bouquet and a dry, full elegant, clean flavour with a delicate aftertaste of fruit which lingers in the mouth.
