TERRE SICILIANE I.G.P.
“Il Covo” comes from the best grapes ripened in the warm Sicilian sun and cradled by the roving Mediterranean winds that carry the scent of the sea, of Moroccan spices, of Tunisian markets, of Egyptian banquets. Soft and alluring, this wine carries with it the fragrances of its island, the peppery notes of the Syrah, the vanilla hues ceded by the barrique, and the intense notes of ripe red fruits. We recommend it be enjoyed in a wide-mouthed glass to accompany highly structured dishes.

According to ancient Greek mythology, Sicily is the homeland of the Cyclops – including the most famous and fearful of them, Polyphemus – who lived in a ‘covo’ (lair).
