Produced in the Mamertino di Milazzo region, this red blend carries the distinguished 'Mamertino Rosso Riserva' designation which requires the wine to have been aged a minimum of 24 months (6 of which in oak barrels). Another rarity with this wine is the mention of the specific vineyard name where the grapes were grown - Sullerìa.

Typically, wines in Italy (and all of Europe) are de ned by their region and the labels rarely mention specific vineyard names - in this case, the Grasso family shows their pride for Sulleria by placing the name on the label. A blend of 60% Nero d'Avola, 30% Syrah, and 10% Nocera, this wine is deep ruby red in color with a bouquet of ripe fruit, irises, and spices. The palate is rich and well-balanced with a touch of oak on the finish.
