Terre Siciliane, Sicily, Italy
Don't let this wine pass you by. This fairly unknown grape was facing possible extinction, it was only with the help of dedicted winemakers' hard efforts and the market demand from Britain and the U.S. that prevented this grape from completely vanishing. Showing cedar and tobacco on the nose we suggest you let it decant for a little while. Black cherry, baking spice and prunes show nicely on the tongue supported by medium tannins which give structure to the wine. Help keep this grape alive and give it a try! Pair this fella with spicy sausage, a bison burger or a wild boar chop.
