About the Wine
Dreams of a Mediterranean island, backed by the warm sun, azure waters, with fresh seafood pasta, and a glass of this wine is just what every armchair traveler needs right now. Meet Papi's red wine from bella Sicilia: "Papios".
In the definitive guide for Italian wines, Luca Maroni rated this wine 98pts, calling it "one of the year's best" from Sicily, and all of Italy in 2019.
The innovative blend combines equal parts of the indigenous grapes Nero d'Avola and Nerello Mascalese with two Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Layers of flavors with blueberry, chocolate, mocha, and baked cherry are topped off with a deft touch of oak, vanilla, and Mediterranean herbs in the finish. The result is a spectacular wine that screams "Delizioso!"
Blend: 25% Nero d'Avola, 25% Nerello Mascalese, 25% Merlot, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: Typical and varietal notes of cherry, mulberry, and raspberry, blended with nuances of elegant spices such as vanilla, coffee, and cocoa. The palate is wide, warm and envelopes the mouth with grip, elegant and velvety tannins. Fruity and rich aftertaste. Enjoy on its own or comfortably pair with any tomato dish, pasta, puttanesca, or grilled meat.
