They have received leading sustainability awards for their holistic and dedicated approach to economic, social, and environmental sustainability, adding even more value to every glass of Tavernello.
Deep ruby with a violet hue, the wine has a prominent fruit forward nose, presenting aromas of cherries, red forest fruit, blackcurrant, violet and a subtle liquorice note. These flavours follow onto a very fresh palate, with a bright acidity balanced perfectly by deep concentration of fruit, well-integrated soft tannins and a long sumptuous finish. Terre Siciliane Rosso IGT Organic is a perfect accompaniment to pizzas, tomato based pasta dishes and grilled red meats.
