Curioso has been conceived as an attempt to experiment with new techniques in order to surprise and delight the winedrinker with a memorable combination of new aromas, flavours and style. The result is an extraordinarily captivating wine which literally flows like finest silk over the palate. The predominant fruit character is that of black cherries. Drink on its own, or with meat-based pasta and meat dishes in general.
Brilliant and bright yellow in colour marked by green hues, it has a powerful exotic fruits flavours combined to perfection with soft herbaceous and floral scents. Soft and round in taste, fruity and well balanced in acidity it has a pleasant and a fresh finish that could accompany at its best all kind of seafood dishes and spicy first courses.
The deep and intense red color fades into delicate violet reflections. Strong aromas of ripe red fruits, of cherry and black cherry, are perfectly integrated with the complex texture of sweet spices and vanilla hints. With body and excellent structure, silky in the mouth and velvety to the taste with its soft and ripe tannins. Curious, it goes well with juicy first courses, roasted red meats, game and soft cheeses.
A look at the past, synergies of the present, a love that evolves, future flavors from our vineyards.
