Warm und samtweich mit ausgeglichener Tanninstruktur. Im Duft breit mit Eindrücken von Brombeeren, Waldbeeren und Kirschen, in harmonischer Kombination mit Vanilledüften, Gewürzen und Tabak wegen der Verfeinerung in Holzfässern. Rubinrot mit granatfarbenen Reflexen.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Rallo family have been involved in wine production in Marsala for over 150 years, but were one of the first families to move into the production of high quality table wine when sales of Marsala started to decline. They have two estates in Sicily: 260 hectares at Contessa Entellina in the hills east of Marsala; and 68 hectares on the island of Pantelleria. Their winery in Marsala is ultra modern, and serves to preserve the flavours obtained in the vineyard. If you remember Alain Delon in the famous film that Luchino Visconti made from Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's Il Gattopardo, you will see that this wine reflects the elegance and ambition of that "revolutionary." The label refers to the wineries at Contessa Entellina but they are placed on a cloud as in a mirage. "Viaggio a Donnafugata," composed by Nino Rota for Visconti. The Cabernet gives the Nero d'Avola a touch of mint, enriching its substantial supply of scents. There are notes of liquorice, cacao, cherries and bilberries against a sweetish background. The flavours are well-structured, full, absorbing and remarkably persistent.
