Deep dark ruby red with purplish hints
Marvelous scents of cherry, prunes, mulberries, blackberries and blackcurrants stand out followed by a duet with fine hints of rhubarb, cinchona, pepper, tobacco, nutmeg and dark chocolate entwined with nuances of minerals and undergrowth.
Power, elegance, lively tannins, matchless softness, freshness, all blended into a balanced and harmonious whole that overwhelms the palate seducing with its limpidity and extraordinary persistence and polish typical of a great wine.
FIRRIATO is one of the "Power Houses" of Sicilian winemaking. In the beginning of the 80's, Salvatore and Vinzia had a dream of bringing Sicilian wines to high quality standards. Since then this tenacious-entrepreneurial couple, with the help of top enologist Giuseppe Pellegrino, created a range of wines that suit the most refined palates. All of their wines are a mix of tradition and innovation, a mix of indigenous and international varieties that throughout the years defined Sicily as perfect land.
|To be matched with rich dishes like pasta with game ragout, risotto with pore mushrooms and sausage, baked mutton, saddle of roe with wild plums, beef braised in this wine. It is perfect with tasty and aged cheeses.
