Calcareous limestone soil, plenty of small size stones; fine texture with fraction of light colored clay. 50% Nero d'Avola, 25% Merlot, 20% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Franc. Ruby red with hints of purple. An explosion of fresh fruit on the nose (red currant, mulberry, raspberry, cherry and prune) balanced by a zesty spiciness. La Segreta
Rosso is a versatile companion for daily drinking, suitable for the most diverse occasions. Vibrant fruit flavors from the Nero d’Avola
are nicely balanced by ripe, soft tannins and a refreshing acidity. Ruby red with slight purple hue, this wine offers intense aromas of red currant, mulberry and raspberry. Mid-palate aromas reveal more complex hints of dark chocolate, roasted herbs, and mint. The finish
is excellent with yet more black cherries, crushed ripe brambleberries and good
structure and backbone. Delicious partner for risotto with beans and meat, barbecued meats, lamb, and flavorful cheeses.
