Ruby red laden with purple hue. Red and black fruit exploding on the nose with redcurrant and cherry. Characteristic fierce hints of Nero d'Avola. Full, enfolding the palate with a pleasant softness and velvety tannin. A wine of open and communicative character; a friendly wine. Suggested pairings: ossobuco, barbecues, tapas, tagliatelle with game sauce.

Wine Advocate

The estate's 2008 La Segreta Rosso offers up bold fruit, spices and sweet herbs in a big, rustic style. This hearty, tasty red is best enjoyed at the dinner table.

Score: 87. —Antonio Galloni, August 2009.

Wine Spectator

Clean and fresh, with plum and citrus aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with a hint of chocolate on the tight finish. Nero d'Avola and Merlot. Drink now.
