Montefalco Rosso DOC 2018 - Cantina Fratelli Pardi
It dresses the glass in a beautiful deep ruby red. The nose is first set on dark fruit in jam and in alcohol, such as currants, black cherries and plums, then followed by intense references to green pepper, cocoa, rhubarb, licorice and chinotto. The mouth is extremely consistent with the nose, and is powerful but well managed in the tannic texture, warm, with excellent body and long persistence. Also ideal for the whole meal with the courses of the land cuisine, it is to be tried as an accompaniment to rabbit alla cacciatora.
