Taste profile from the winemaker: None found.

ABC Wines review: This wine, made from a grape that is native to Sicily, comes in a dark bottle with a unique glass cap closure. A golden yellow in color, the fragrance is of tropical fruits, notably pineapple, with some interesting herbal notes. The palate is smooth and well balanced, and develops a brisk acidity. The finish is exceptionally long with a nice blend of flavors that continues to evolve. A rich wine to serve with your best meals. Our score: This is our first taste of this varietal so it is impossible to make direct comparisons. Nevertheless, this is a terrific wine. Excellent.

Winery website: Cusumano (in both Italian and English).
