It is made of  Tintore and Per’ e Palummo grapes; they are cultivated according to the old traditional system of atypical radial cultivation.
It has got an intense ruby colour with purple tinges, a fruity hint, and its scent reminds of the whole range of bushes and spices typical of the steep Mediterranean coasts.
