Rustic-red in colour with luscious aromas of blackberry and raspberry jam. The palate is dominated by rich, red fruit flavours with waves of spices. The name Benuara comes from the small red flowers that grow near the vineyards.

The Benuara vineyards are located in the Alcamese district in the province of Trapani at an altitude of 820ft above sea level. The total area encompasses 172 acres of clay-based soils that produce highly structured wines. The Néro d'Avola (70%) and Syrah (30%) grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed on arrival at the winery followed by cold maceration for 2 days. Traditional fermentation with frequent re-circulation and removal of the must. Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel, followed by ageing in stainless steel (80%) and in 20HL barrels.
