Il Censo Terre Siciliane Njuro 2016

"Known locally as the black dog (Il njuro cane), the Perricone variety gives wines that present a mouthful of brambly dark fruit, raspberry leaf, fennel, and spices. Its palate dominates with deep, cutting, mineral tannins and charming rusticity. Low in alcohol but deep in color, its depth and power faithfully display Sicily’s excitingly yet-to-be-discovered terroir." -Rosenthal Wine Merchant
