From: Italy, Terre Siciliane IGT
By: Frank Cornelissen
100% made from the Sicilian native grape Nerello Mascalese. Vinificated with the skins on for 60 days. On the Nose, black cherries and raspberries evolving onto wonderful spices such as anise. The palate is deep and complex, fruity and jam like in the beginning, then moving on to complex notes such as chocolate.
