On the palate, flavors of grapefruit and lime zest come together with passion fruit to create an intense and delicious wine. 91 Points Wine & Spirit!

This rosso highlights the region's typical red varietals creating a wine that is equally delicious as it is captivating.

Finishing clean and very fresh, it's a fun solo sipper and a great match for any warm weather food. 90% Nero D'Avola, 10% Nerelo Mascalese.
Mac Phail “The Flyer” 2013 Russian River Pinot Noir – “Let this burly, big-boned beauty open to fully enjoy its robust oak and fistfuls of black cherry, the oak showing in terms of toasty, slightly reductive aromas.
