Unico di Benedetta

IGP Terre Siciliane - Red


Something extremely curious: a Sangiovese wine on the Etna. The character of the great Tuscan grapes interprets this magical territory, starting from the deep ruby red colour. The nose is immediately fruity: ripe red fruits like black cherry and blackberry. Then violet, graphite, licorice and cinchona. In the mouth it is well-balanced, supported by alcohol and a velvety smoothness on one side and elegant tannins on the other. The taste is full and simple at the same time, thanks to the presence of acidity. Long lasting end.
