FANUS

IGP TERRE SICILIANE

Dry red wine linked, as the name implies, to its birth place, Contrada Fanusa. Old and new vines, planted right in the heart of this fertile land, combined with innovative winemaking techniques, create a blend that combines Sicilian history and wine internationalisation. This wine is of intense ruby red in colour with purple hues, so typical of Nero d’Avola:it smells of rose, raspberry and blackcurrant. On the palate it is persistent, velvety with clear hints of blackberry and cherry and fine, soft tannins.Red wine Fanus Cantine Gulino Siracusa
