To new beginnings, first hints and glimmers, opportunities for birth and rebirth. A starting point from which a rosé with a hint of brown comes to life, aged in different woods, with an undisputed mineral character typical of Calabrian soils. A balanced aroma with evolved varietal flavors and tertiary hints. The body and velvety tannins take the lead.

 

 

 

 

 Calabrese (Nero d'Avola) grape: Leaf - large, orbicular, entire; Cluster - medium, conical, winged, often compound and moderately compact; Berry - medium, ellipsoidal or oval; Skin - pruinose, of medium thickness, highly resistant, bluish in color. The Calabrese (Nero d'Avola) grape variety yields a red-ruby wine that is dry, high in alcohol content, appropriately acidic, full-bodied, with a neutral aroma and flavor. Single-varietal wines have proven to be suitable for aging in barrels, thanks to their delicate aromas and good aging potential.
