This wine comes from the meeting between two vineyards: the Nero d’Avola, deeply rooted in the Sicilian territory, and the Cabernet Sauvignon, internationally renowed. For this reason it has very peculiar features, conveyed and intensified by the pedoclimatic conditions.

It has a very captivating taste, its perfect mix of minerality, acidity and tannicity make its flavor intense and persistent.
