Rosso Garofalo from Abbazia San Giorgio is made from two indigenous grape varieties, Nero d’Avola and Alicante, both growing on volcanic soil rich in micro elements. The wine is earthy and mineral. Nice cassis aromas in the nose meanwhile in the palate lots of tasty black cherries. Some notes of violets, black olives and rosemary. Great complexity and powerful tannins.

Tipp: If you wanna get the best features out of this wine drink it on the same day, it might get a bit nutty hour after hour. This obviously might change in the future as the wine ages and develops.
