Food Pairings for Montefalco Rosso DOC Riserva
The aroma is evolved: bramble and wild berries jelly, cherries, bottled black cherries and dried wild cherries. There is a complex spicy note due to Sagrantino and to the ageing in big cask. In this wine you can also find a firm toasting and a scent of tobacco and vanilla. Acidity is brilliant, tannin is well integrated and smooth; softness and pseudo-caloric sensation give balance and a pleasant harmony to this wine.
