Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - Dark berry fruits and olive tapenade marry well with pink peppercorn, rosemary, forest floor, and dark plum. The palate is distinctly fruit-forward with supple tannins leading into a fresh and fruity finish. Exceptionally smooth. (Jul 2015)
The white soils of this ancient and noble heartland of wine making in Sicily give its products a warming mellowness and a marked mineral tone. Symposio was created as a supreme interpretation of the local terroir. Cabernet, Petit Verdot and Merlot combine – here where the civilization of Enotria had its fulcrum – gaining in brilliance and mellifluousness. This wine, matured for 18 months in medium-sized barrels, is the result of the encounter between the freshness of Cabernet, the tanginess of Petit Verdot and the fruitiness of Merlot, becoming a Mediterranean symphony that takes on notes of undergrowth and stone. It is an aristocratic wine that is ideal for accompanying refined meat dishes and typical Sicilian specialities such as pasta alla Norma or Farsumagru.
