ItVegetable soups, games, roast beef and matured cheeses all partner this wine. Sicilian cookery: roast lamb, beef and potato stew, rabbit in red wine, boiled beef, stuffed meat roll. Sicilian cheese: Maiorchino.
Immediate bilberry notes followed by floral bouquet, vanilla and toasty finish on the nose. The palate shows a lovely texture and velvety richness in the mouth, it is well supported by acidity and creamy, elegant tannins. Very persistent with a fresh and pleasant length.
