Duca Di Montalbo Rosso Sicilia IGT. 75 cl Azienda Agricola G Milazzo
It is our most precious Red. Only the best vintages, using the oldest vineyards, over 50 years old and with the lowest yield, become Duca di Montalbo. The Cru is decisive: the Montalbo district is characterized by 100% calcareous marl, a "lunar" soil surprisingly suitable for the long maturation of red wines.
An intense red color with violet reflections.
Fresh and elegant on the nose, it lets out hints of fresh red fruit where blackberry, raspberry and plum stand out, it closes with spicy notes, aromatic vegetable hints such as rosemary and thyme.
The palate is powerful and structured: rich in tannins of exceptional quality, silky and elegant. Full-bodied and fresh at the same time it reveals a great gustatory persistence.
