This is our Super Sicilian. The power of Nero d'Avola meets the roundness of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in a Sicilian Bourdeaux blend. The aging in oak makes the Nero d'Avola rounder, and enhances both Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon which on Clayey and medium texture soil develop their typical complexity, resulting in a wine with a long aging potential.
