Aroma: Blackberry and redcurrant. Taste: Fresh cherry with hints of coffee and chocolate with soft, round tannins and a lingering finish. Name story: Il Gattopardo or "The Leopard" is named for Giuseppe di Lampedusa's classic novel, a sensuous social commentary on Sicily's aristocratic past. Vineyards and winemaking: Low-yielding, old vines in stony soils on the Southernmost tip of Sicily near the Ionian Sea. Careful selection and temperature-controlled fermentation with native yeasts. Bottled unfined and unfiltered after aging in French oak for 6 months.
