Being enveloped by the intensity and finesse of this blend is a truly intriguing emotion. Cristo di Campobello has always had a great balance in its wines, which demonstrate an affinity with the land where they are made with precise wisdom and experience.
The fruit enclosed in this Adènzia Rosso 2018 is the tangible demonstration of its depth and research, with notes of particular olfactory elegance dictated in a frank and clear way by the Nero d’Avola, well harmonized by the “wild” Syrah, as regards its particular aromas , which in this case is exalted by an inebriating breadth.
It recalls the Sicilian summer as much as it can be represented by the sea wind that collects with it bringing all the aromas of aromatic herbs towards the land, but at the same time it is alive in the candied red fruit and notes of black pepper well expressed in the olfactory finesse.
In the mouth, the harmony felt on the nose is accentuated by its softness and in an overwhelming body. To be combined exclusively with an evening with real friends.
