Quater Vitis Rosso encapsulates wine-rich Sicily in a glass. It is a blend of Nero d’Avola, Perricone and Frappato grapes grown on the Pianoro Cuddìa estate, with Nerello Cappuccio grapes grown on the Cavanera Estate at about 680 metres above sea level on Etna. It comes from four different grape harvests, followed by as many separate vinifications which all enhance the uniqueness of each single variety. Each single wine is aged in American and French oak, for a maximum of 10 months. The different woods give different wood notes that unite in nuances of vanilla. The best cuvees obtained from this then undergo assemblage, giving life to this wine which harmoniously enhances the fragrances of red fruit from the Nero d’Avola, the freshness from Frappato, the spicy notes of Nerello Cappuccio and the elegance of Perricone.

Nose: It affords marvelous and intense hints of cherries soaked in alcohol, blackcurrants and bilberries that alternate with hints of chocolate, pepper, blond tobacco and cloves set against a balmy and minty backdrop.
Palate: Fleshy and dense, it overwhelms the taste buds with confidence and seduces them with the fruity body, vibrant and powerful acidity and an array of noble, extremely fine, soft and caressing tannins.
