On the nose the wine is original and different from
others; white pepper, geranium and summer fruits,
plums and ripe Noto figs. On the palate it is soft and
persuasive, the typical style of this ancient Sicilian grape
variety and definitely to be experienced. The vines are
still young and so also the structure of the wine, which
however remains utterly original.
