The Sammarcello Pignatello appears a deep ruby and purple color with crimson flashes in the glass. A classic autochthonous wine, characterized by its elegant balanced structure, and by its bouquet of highly-toned notes of black cherry liquor, eucalyptus, rose and violet as well as by its liquorice, orange chocolate and underwood balsamic scents.
