RED WINE PERRICONE 'RIBECA' FIRRIATO 2016 DESCRIPTION

Ribeca, as shown by the label, is an ancient musical instrument, ancestor of the violin. The Perricone, rare grape, symbolizes the harmony of an almost forgotten ancient music, that can create full and delicate melodies. A rare wine to combine with tasty dishes such as cannelloni with pecorino and mutton stew.

Colour Deep ruby red

Scent Fruity notes of cherry jam, blackberry and plum with hints of spicy cloves, ginger, juniper berries and licorice

Taste Full and rich, with velvety tannins and a pleasant freshness
