Cantodoro

Sicilia DOC

A wine that expresses the two souls of Sicily: a land of great native grapes like Nero d'Avola, but also a land where successfully grow international varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon. The Nero d’Avola has a notable fruit component of ripe blackberry, wild strawberry and raspberry that is well integrated with the distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon notes. Cabernet Sauvignon achieves excellent maturity in Sicily and gives the blend both aromas of currants and red fruit, as well as, structure and body that give longevity and depth to the final wine. The evolved aromatic notes come from the long but thoughtful aging in barriques. Aging in barriques grants this wine evolved aromatic notes of liquorice, tobacco and plum with a light touch of vanilla. These rich elements give dimension to this wine’s quality.
