Degustation notes

Cherry red colour, almost black, a delicate, generous bouquet, richly varied with aromas of ripe blackberries, smoky nuances, very fruity on the attack, nicely assembled and full of character, rich in extracts, still a little young, beautiful structure marked by delicate grilled nuances and evident tannins. A wine that merits a bit of ageing.

Special notes

A wine from the Baglio Soria vineyard and the Firriato wine cellars from the Province of Paceco - at an elevation of between 100 and 180 meters in soil of volcanic origin. The wine is aged for 8 months in French and American oak barrels. In Sicily, the natural elements of wind and sun blend perfectly with the balanced Mediterranean climate that prevails. Casa Vinicola Firriato was built in 1985. Its two owners - two young entrepreneurs - are also the producers: Salvatore and Vinzia di Gaetano. In 1994, Salvatore and Vinzia di Gaetano met with Australian winemakers that made them discover the benefits of technology from the other side of the world, where the climatic conditions greatly ressemble the Sicilian climate. They exchanged their mutual experiences in the company of oenologist Guiseppe Pellegrino. The Firriato vineyard now covers 300 hectares, of which 200 are premier quality vines.

    Preis Leistung sehr gut. Italiener mit viel Potenzial - Der Wein scheint noch ziemlich jung zu sein aber mit viel Potenzial. Noch 2, 3 Jahre lagern wären ideal. Schon der intensive aber angenehme Duft lässt es erahnen. Auch die Degustation unterstreicht diesen besonderen Wein. Sehr kräftiges, dichtes und leicht kantiges Aroma. Der Abgang ist lang anhaltend.
    Er ist ein sehr moderner Wein. Vom 8 mon. Barrique Ausbau schmeckt man wenig bis nichts. Die Italiener setzen heute auf echte und unverfälschte Weine die nicht vom Barriquearoma überdeckt we
