From the native Gaglioppo vines (60%) and Greco Nero (40%), this intense and complex wine matures 24 months in French oak barrel and then ages for 12 months in the bottle.
Red wine with an intense ruby red color with slight orange reflections. Spicy notes on the nose with hints of ripe red fruits. Powerful, complex taste, good sensation of ripe tannins that give a long and persistent finish.
Accompanies structured menus based on first and second courses of meat. Perfect in combination with aged Crotone pecorino.
