Selian Carignan Calatrasi 2004

Member Review by Alfonso Palazzo:

The wine son of Desert with "Italian DNA". Selian(a North African word for the Sahara desert) is a deep purple color wine with an intense bouquet, and an alcoholic content higher than 14 degrees, full-bodied and well structured. The nose had some vanilla and cherry notes. It had sweet fruit notes of rde and black berries with herbal and toffee nuances. Interestingly enough, fermentation of the grapes does not take place in Tunisia because it is illegal to produce alcohol in the country.Thus the grapes are shipped to the Calatrasi Winery in Sicily for fermentation.
