Description

Description:

The main purpose of our business is to produce wines which respect the identity of our extraordinary territory.

The company presents two red wines, a Sangiovese wine on the Etna. The character of the great Tuscan grapes interprets this magical territory, starting from the deep ruby red colour. The nose is immediately fruity: ripe red fruits like black cherry and blackberry. Then violet, graphite, licorice and cinchona. In the mouth it is well-balanced, supported by alcohol and a velvety smoothness on one side and elegant tannins on the other. The taste is full and simple at the same time, thanks to the presence of acidity. Long lasting end.

The second wine: the colour is a bright ruby red with clear edges. The bouquet is full of typical smells: pot-pourry of red and dried fruits, where raspberry and cherry jump out of the glass, followed by Asian spices, aromatic herbs, graphite and salty sea notes. The taste embraces the mouth totally, with a long persistence, supported by good tannins and salty sea notes. The balance makes this wine elegant and ready to drink. Long lasting end.

The company is looking for an importer or distributor for restaurants or also engaged in distributions to hotels.
