Bonme Moscato Aromatizzato, Poderi Colla 50cl*
Piemonte / Italy
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Serve chilled as an aperitif or dessert wine. Tried and tested with squidgy hazelnut cake and chocolate brownies. Also goes well with strong cheeses.
An ancient absinthe recipe, but tastes more like Vermouth, initially used for the Colla family’s private consumption, but now by popular demand, available in limited quantities in the UK. A delicate mixture of intense, old-vine Moscato grapes fortified pre-fermentation to 15% abv, to retain the grapes natural sweetness. Then a secret blend of infused rinds, roots, pips and flowers are integrated a few months before bottling. This produces a delicious combination of fresh grapey Moscato fruit with a woody, herbal complexity.
