Description

The Fattoria San Francesco Vignacorta Rosso IGT matured for nine months in new French oak casks. The Gaglioppo, and Magliocco grape varieties unite here in wonderful interaction. The ruby-red wine is redolent of herbs, a fine spice and lots of fruit (cherries, bilberries), complemented by fine notes of marzipan, caramel and milk chocolate. On the palate, the Fattoria San Francesco Vignacorta Rosso IGT is warm, full-bodied and well-balanced, with a lovely length.

This assemblage from Calabria goes beautifully with spicy first courses, red meat and ripe cheeses. It is also a good accompaniment to barbecue skewers, grilled Branzino (perch), veal liver and stews.
