Fazzoletto Passito Barbera 2017

£10.55

Available

SKU: 1619 Categories: , ,

This wine is a rediscovery of the old tradition of using partially-dried grapes to add richness and concentration. To make it a small portion (20%) of the grapes grown in the Monferrato hills were left on the vine for nearly a month after the main harvest to sun dry, they were then blended with the fresh grapes before fermentation. This sweetens, enriches and softens the wine. So we have a fleshy and juicy red with aromas of sweet ripe plums and cherries. The palate is full of fresh cherry and wild plum fruit which finishes with a taste of bitter chocolate to keep it nicely balanced. A good match for roast poultry or game, or rich stews and pasta dishes.

The name and neckerchief print around the bottle represent the ‘Fazzoletto Rosso’ worn by Italian resistance fighters during World War 2, symbolising freedom and rebellion. Packaged with three distinct labels featuring: Michaelangelo’s Statue of David, the Statue of Abundance (Trevi Fountain) and the Statue of Augustus of Prima Porta – all wearing the red neckerchief.

This wine is suitable for vegans & vegetarians.
