Terre Siciliane IGT
Montecarrubo is planted on the crater of a volcano that has been extinct for more than two million years and is cooled by constant sea breezes. Run according to biodynamic practices, the wines are all based on Syrah grapes, here 50% balanced with the addition of 25% each of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. On the nose the wine has notes of blackberries, blueberries and wild herbs. The palate is full and rich and very lively with good plummy fruit flavours and a touch of freshly grated black pepper. On the finish there is good acidity and refreshing, silky tannins. A lovely wine, still young for the moment which will age well for at least another five years.
