Sergio Drago (trained by the legendary Alessandro Viola) is the new hot natural winemaker out of Masala, Sicily. The "Rosa" bottling hails from a plot in Alcamo with calcareous soil at 900 feet elevation.
Delicious chilled as a rosato or at cellar temp like a light bodied red - your choice. Supremely refreshing, freshly picked strawberries, basil, a slight mid-palate creaminess, nice and round with brisk acidity and a dry finish. A serious thirst quencher.
