Characteristics of this  Etna Rosso "Contrada Villagrande" Doc

Upon organoleptic examination, this Sicilian wine shows a bright and fluid ruby red colour; on the nose floral aromas and fresh fruit from the undergrowth harmonize with balsamic and herbaceous notes. In the mouth, the balance between acidity and tannin is striking on the one hand, fruit and minerality on the other. Fine and persistent.
