Amorosso, a portmanteau name for the Italian words for ‘Love’ and ‘Red’, perfectly describes this wine; a ruby red color when young, which then deepens with age. The nose excites with hints of ripe cherries, plums and a touch of liquorice. It also leaves a great impression on the palate with a combination of fruit, spices and dark coffee. Pronounced tannins and a high alcohol content produce a robust wine with everlasting flavors on the finish. It is a rich and well-structured dry wine, as well as fruity and liqueur-like. It has a noble bitterness that reminds one of other bold red wines that typically leave a lasting impression. Enjoyable with hearty dishes or as an after-dinner drink when discussions get passionate.
Food pairing: Pasta matched with a pesto or spicy tomato sauce, roast meats, and cheeses of the Parmesan style.
Serving: Between 14 degrees and 16 degrees celcius.
Comments: May be enjoyed young but also has the ability for extended aging.
