Producer Info:

On the far north-western tip of Sicily and sitting above the ancient city of Erice, are the beautiful vineyards striving to produce wines of expression and typicity. Older, low yielding vines that are farmed organically and painstakingly hand-harvested, here are an expression of love for an ancient way of life in an ancient land.  Andrea Sartori has been a pioneer in Organic viticulture and the vineyards have been certified Organic for up to thirty years.

Tasting note:

This is a food-lovers wine and has an instant impact of lifted cherry, raspberry, leather and brown spices.

The palate is soft yet flavoursome and immediately exotic. Rich in red fruit flavours and laden with savoury spice notes with brisk acidity that drives a very long salivating finish.
