The Cabernet Sauvignon gives great finesse and longevity, with tannins that prove important and velvety. Black d'Avola is a significant component: the nose stands out the fruity (cherry and marasca) and the spicy. Tannat strengthens the fruity component and provides a
large polyphenolic structure rich in noble tannins: an ideal grape for wines with long refinements.
Longevity: over 10 years.
