Cellaro is a modern producer operating under the umbrella of the Farnese group. It is situated near Sambuca, in the Belice Valley. In 2016 Sambuca was officially acknowledged as the most beautiful small village in Italy. Sambuca, originally founded by ancient Greek colonists, rose to regional prominence as a trading hub after invading Arab Muslims took over around 830, just a few years after landing in Sicily. It was called Zabuth, in remembrance of the emir Zabut ("The Splendid One") Al-Arab, who built a castle at that place, on the slopes of Mount Genuardo.
Great ruby red color with garnet reflections. Explosive bouquet of ripe cherries and blackberries, oriental spices, with hints of dried fruit. Harmonious, lively and well-structured taste. Perfectly balanced tannins, a slight natural residual sweetness and refreshing acidity round off this exceptional wine. Balanced and long-lasting aftertaste.
