“Fior del Vento”
Sangue di Giuda dell’Oltrepò Pavese DOC
Sweet semi-sparkling red wine
Vineyards located in: Canneto Pavese.
Soil: the vineyards are located on a south-oriented very steep sloping hillside.
Grapes: Croatina (60%), Barbera (25%) and Uva Rara (15%).
Vinification: after a light pressing of the grapes, the must is kept in contact with the skins for a short but intense fermentation to bring out all the fragrances of the grapes. After the bottling, the wine rests in horizontally stored bottles for an additional period (from 6 to 12 months) .
Tasting notes: slightly sparkling sweet red wine; very intense ruby red colour with purple highlights. On the nose it reveals a rich and winey bouquet, with jellied red fruits in evidence. On palate, it’s pleasant with a long finish and a surprising harmony between the crispness of the tannins and the sweetness of the residual sugar.
Pairing suggestions: it goes very well fruit desserts and pastry. In our region people use to enjoy it also with salami.
Service temperature: best served at a 12-15 °C temperature in a tulip-shaped glass.
Available formats: 0,75 l bottle.
Questi non hanno speranza di morte,
e la lor cieca vita è tanto bassa,
che ‘nvidiosi son d’ogne altra sorte.
Fama di loro il mondo esser non lassa
misericordia e giustizia li sdegna
non ragioniam di lor, ma guarda e passa.
Inferno, Canto III, 46-51
