Sole di Sesta
2012

Sole di Sesta is a Syrah, ruby red in colour with violet reflexes. Wide notes of sweet fruit, with fresh nuances of the Mediterranean blending, well with hints of spice, such as chocolate and black pepper. An appealing wine, full, well-balanced, warm, solar, good body, rich in noble tannins well supported by good acidity. Excellent, long persistent aftertaste.
