Deep, dark ruby, with crimson highlights, the wine’s fiery intensity of aromas and flavors is well worthy of its island home. Very rich, fragrant bouquet of wild berries, sweet spice, tobacco and chocolate with earthy notes characteristic of dry soil; a velvety, complex, full-bodied palate with sweet tannins, fresh, fruity flavors and acidity, wonderful balance and a luscious, bright style.
Best served at 16-18 °C (60.8-64.4 °F).
Wonderful paired with flavorful and slightly spicy dishes or fish with capers, typical of the Aeolian Islands. (Like fresh tuna with capers.)
