An intriguing wine sourced from the only DOCG on Sicily- Cerasuolo di Vittoria- though Syrah is not one of the permitted varities so it is IGT. A smoky and herbal aroma intertwines with blackberry perfume and a slight warmth. The palate is an interesting mix of both old world and new, as it contains some of the freshness of cool climate Syrah, some of the acid and tannic length of Northern Rhone, but also some of the lush and sweet fruit found in California Syrah. Juicy black fruit, a velvety mouthfeel and just enough complexity add a certain spice and depth. Sourced from an old clone of Syrah grown in Sicily for decades, it is hard to pin point, as if it has taken on a life of its own over the years and is a totally unique clone.
