Peloro Rosso Terre Siciliane IGT

70% Nerello Mascalese and 30% Nocera. Brilliant ruby red in color with violet reflections. The bouquet has generous aromas of small red berries, floral fragrances as well as carob, licorice and spice. On the palate the wine has fresh acidity, rich fruit flavors, mineral notes, and vibrant tannins.

“Le Casematte is deeply rooted in the territory and its history but also values the needs of contemporary wine production.”
