The 2020 Sicilia Rose delivers a captivating bouquet full of peppery florals, young strawberries with stems and all, plus a note of flowery undergrowth that seals the deal. This is soft and enveloping, contrasting ripe melon with zesty yellow citrus and bright acidity. It’s incredibly long with cheek-puckering tension, as a mix of sour lemon and green apple slowly fizzles out. This is a high-energy 50/50 blend of Syrah and Nero d'Avola.
