Elegant and graceful. Comes from soils with a strong calcareous imprint. One of the very few pink wines made from Perricone grapes (a variety also known as Pignatello), thanks to its versatility it pairs perfectly with a variety of traditional Sicilian land and seafood dishes. We prefer it with tuna tartare with orange juice
