harvest note

Sicily saw what could be described as the “perfect summer” in 2016. Rainfall was at a minimum and temperatures were not as hot as normal. These elements made for a perfect maturation, giving the white varietals a great balance and structure.

tasting note

Mahâris offers a ruby red color with purple highlights. On the nose balsamic notes mix with cocoa and coffee. In the mouth, balsamic notes return from the bouquet, with soft tannins that envelop the palate. The finish exhibits spicy, smoky notes that make this wine both pleasant and unforgettable

food pairing

Pairs well with fine meats, game and braised red meats.
