Tasting:The impenetrable and compact color reveals the “fleshiness” of this wine, a cherry jam dipped in chocolate. To remind us that it is Sagrantino we find smooth yet very present tannins.
Food Pairing: Suggested as a sipping wine or with its “Tozzetti” cookies. We hazard pairing with a very aged pecorino cheese or spicy game.
