Hauner Salina Rosso IGT
60% Nero d’Avola and 40% Nerello Mascalese. Ruby with decided violet hues, legs show good depth and viscosity, anticipating the wine’s excellent structure. Ample, intense aromas of blackberry and black cherry, spicy notes of vanilla, licorice and carob with toasted nuances. Firm tannins, good balance, body and flavor intensity, lingering, silky finish.
“At Hauner we believe that, given the amazing soils, unique landscapes, and fantastic grapes of the Aeolian Islands, we are honor-bound to create wines worthy of such fruit.”
