Intense and brilliant purple colour, characteristic floral bouquet of considerable intensity with hints of rose and violet. Creamy, pleasant, and remarkably persistent.
An excellent accompaniment to meat-based hors d’oeuvres and pasta dishes with meat fillings. Try it in combination with Neapolitan pizza, especially if gar- nished with cured meats.
The inhabitants of the valley have respected the river and its lands. The floor of the Calore Valley is like a vast open garden, as far as the eye can see, where the land- scape and the agricultural vocation have been jealously protected, only the old railway crosses it. Here, right in the heart of the valley, along the green corridor of the river, on the silty-sandy, fertile, and deep, fresh, calcar- eous, permeable, and well drained soils, we produce the grapes for our sparkling and spumante wines, which clearly owe their freshness and elegance to these pris- tine river environments.
