Black olive, mature blackberry, tilled soil and a hint of game are some of the aromas you’ll find on this earthy, alluring wine. The fresh, savory palate offers crushed cherry, blackberry, ground pepper, clove anise and a hint of leather alongside fresh acidity and velvety tannins.

A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and frappato from Vittoria in southeastern Sicily, this tastes like salumi, fennel and dried herbs. It’s complex and tightly focused on earthiness rather than varietal flavors. The finish is lightened up by a ruby grapefruit–like acidity, tart against the fine-grained tannins. Pour it with finocchiona.
