Notes from the producer:
"Core is the name of the cru from which the grapes hail. The name has its origins in a vineyard that has always been called, “core,” by the farmers of Montoni. In Sicilian, “core” means heart. In fact, seen from above, the vineyard is the shape of a heart.
Ruby red in color with light violet reflections. Notes of prune, blueberry, and black pepper, intermingle with those of cocoa and licorice. Fresh, soft and round on the palate with bold tannins that are typical of this variety, well-polished."
