Terre Siciliane Perricone

This wine is a true expression of its territory without compromise, because of its richness in beneficial substances, its cultivation and natural vinification. Lots of fruits on the nose and palate with crushed blackcurrants and wild herbs. Medium to full bodied with firm tannins and rustic hints. Fun to drink now or save it for later.
