Fine, rich and fresh to the palate, Fatagione, made from Nerello Mascalese and international varieties, has an intense, ruby colour, typical of this grape. Distinct scent of wild berries, red cherry, strawberries, raspberries, and some notes of Mediterranean bush. Balanced on the palate, with a pleasant, fruity aftertaste.
