DESCRIPTION

Full ruby-red color, but with a nice transparency. In the nose one immediately detects the tones of black fruit, followed by spices and cloves. If you let the wine breathe for a moment one then also senses the saline from the Sicilian sea-side. In the mouth rich  and full but nicely balanced against a natural acidity with keeps the wine fresh and drinkable at the same time. Suggestion is to serve the wine slightly chilled and to then slowly let it warm up while you are drinking it as to experience its evolution. 

PRODUCER

The farm at Bosco Falconeria, located some 60 kilometers west of Palermo in the hills overlooking the Gulf of Castellammare, has belonged to the Simeti family since 1933, when it was a 12 hectare farm dedicated mainly to vineyards.

Family problems, the agricultural crisis and the 1968 earthquake resulted in a period of abandonment of the farm until in the early seventies when the farmhouse was restored as a vacation home.  From then onwards summers and weekends became busier and busier. The passionate involvement of Antonio Simeti, agronomist, matched with the curiosity of his wife, Mary Taylor Simeti, who in the early ‘80’s - while exporting Sicily to the States through books and articles - began to bring back information about organic agriculture, led to a complete revival of the farm.
