DESCRIPTION

A red wine only made with Nero d’Avola grapes. The harvesting takes place in September. The grapes are distilled in steel vats and then aged for 6 months in barrel and further 6 months in the bottle.

Haris is famous for its fullness and balance of alcohol and tannins.

The colour of the wine is deep ruby, with light purple reflections. Red berries, vanilla, sweet tobacco  and light balsamic nuances are the characteristics perceptible to the palate. It is elegant and at the same time intensive. Its acidity and flavor bring out a pleasant velvety tannins, which make it extremely long and persistent. In the final they perceive woody notes derived from the oak barrels tannins.
