Tancredi

An elegant red. An affordable luxury

Tancredi

Deep red, Tancredi 2012 is characterized by a fragrant bouquet, notes of red fruit and dark berry fruit combined with scents of liquorice and sweet tobacco. In the mouth the tannins are soft and well integrated. An enveloping and persistent finish.

Artistic label

If you remember Alain Delon in the famous movie that Luchino Visconti made from Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa’s The Leopard, you will see that this wine reflects the elegance and ambition of that “revolutionary” man. The label refers to the wineries at Contessa Entellina but they are placed on a cloud as in a mirage, as in “Viaggio a Donnafugata,” composed by Nino Rota for Visconti.
