Le Sabbie dell 'Etna Rosso DOC by Firriato sparkles like a shining ruby. In the nose, it presents typical mineral, ripe and elegant notes that are intensely and distinctly reminiscent of black currants, black cherries, plum jam, dried violets, liquorice and pepper.
The balanced, harmonious, mature, rich and refined palate of Firriato's Le Sabbie dell 'Etna Rosso develops strength and liveliness. Charming tannins of exceptional velvetiness accompany the remarkably long lasting finale.
