Firriato Etna Red 750ml 2007   
Sku: 12652

Tasting notes
Color Bright ruby red with lively shades of purple Nose It affords typically mineral, ripe and elegant notes that unfold alternating intense and distinct scents of blackcurrants, prune jam, black cherries, liquorice, pepper and wilted violet. Palate Well-balanced and harmonious, it develops with energy and liveliness; it is rich, warm and refined, with suave tannins of extraordinary lineage; the lingering aroma and rewarding and juicy finale are noteworthy.

Technical notes
Nerello Mascalese 80% and Nerello Cappuccio 20%

Food pairing
Veal meatballs in sauce, polenta with deer ragout, ravioli in duck sauce, rich pork and potato stew, baked kid, oxtail Vaccinara-style, beef and bell peppers, lamb coated with breadcrumbs and fried in butter. It matches well also with tasty medium-aged firm-bodied cheeses.
