On the hill in which our winery rises, a vineyard of almost one hectare which face north-east lies. In this very cool and ventilated land, where the sun penetrates with its rays only in the first hours of the day, the Syrah grapes of MNRL (Monreale) Vigna di Mandranova grow vigorously.

A refined Cru of Syrah, exclusive result of the best vintages and of the peculiarities of the land from which it comes. Very rich and enveloping, it stands out for the impeccable balance between structure and freshness, and for its elegant and complex bouquet. A wine of great charm and personality.

deep ruby red

AdC_olfatto@2xA rich and fascinated bouquet, with notes of juniper and rhubarb combined with china and liquorice aromas, enriched at the end with a slight smoky note and an enveloping aroma of sandalwood and incense.


The perfect balance between power and freshness reveals its strong but enchanting character, with a large and smooth taste reinvigorated by a thick and silky tannin, and a gentle salty closure that reminds hints of capers and anchovies.
