Dusty and floral in character with a mix of blackberries, violets and lavender on the nose. This soothes the palate with soft textures that usher in a pretty mix of red berries, minerals and spice. The slightest tannic presence lingers through the finish along with hints of licorice. This will find its best expression at the dinner table.
The ancient depiction of the famous mosaic found in the Piazza Armerina, in the province of Enna, tells the legend of Eros (Cupid) and Psyche (Beauty) who, out of envy from Venus, are forced to love each other in secret. This passion gives birth to a daughter called Voluptas (Pleasure).
This represents a metaphor where Eros is Gulfi, whose love for his beautiful land (Psyche) gives birth to his wines which are an expression of pure pleasure (Voluptus).
