Wine is a joy and exaltation of bodily sensations, and this is why the Senses Line was born, which includes "monovarietal" wines in purity.
The whole line is followed by verses of illustrious poets, translated by Salvatore Quasimodo and is worthy of some works by Salvatore Incorpora, whose his art was nourished by sculpture, painting, poetry and narrative.
The sacred and the social, the won and the hope, today speak to the heart of man in a universal meaning, through the theme of wine.
From a medium calcareous soil, “Gela”,in the olden times called Terranova and Corleone born the ours Merlot, bringer of roundness and softness, from the nose offers a full fruit, such as blueberries, violets, blackcurrant, prunes, cherries, tomato leaves and fennel.
