KAID | Late Harvest

From the superb Syrah vineyards, Alessandro’s family has only selected 1.5 hectares of land dedicated to an innovative and outstanding production. “Late Harvest” is the result of this entrepreneurial effort, in which, tradition and innovative wine-making have been combined to perfection.

Silky, harmonious, of rare elegance, it fully expresses the wonderful Sicilian land. A “pearl” that captivates for its exquisite refinement and its extraordinarily pleasant taste.

 particularly intense and deep ruby-red, enriched with brilliant and lively notes.

AdC_olfatto@2x an authentic kaleidoscope of soft and refined notes of blackcurrants, wild cherries in alcohol, plain chocolate, tobacco, cloves, black pepper, Mediterranean shrubs, all of which bring this unique bouquet to life.

AdC_palato@2x slightly sweet, with a generous taste of extraordinary long-lasting complexity, Late Harvest Kaid is a wine which readily reveals its subtle but exceptional character, inciting the taster with its innate and unparalleled qualities.
