Red Wine

Grapes: Syrah
Appellation: Monreale DOC


The unusually cold spring, which was also characterised by good rainfall, and the mild, dry weather during the summer period allowed the Syrah La Monaca to ripen very well, albeit a few days later than the historical average for the vineyard. The result is a wine with exceptional finesse and tannic complexity and a nose rich in aromas.
