FAZZOLETTO BARBERA PASSITO 2017
Nose: A fleshy and juicy red with aromas of sweet ripe plums and cherries.
Palate: The palate shows ripe fruit-forward characters of cherry and wild plum and the ripe rounded finish is balanced by fresh bramble acidity.
Food Pairing: A good match for roast poultry or game, or rich stews and pasta dishes.
About the wine: The name and neckerchief print around the bottle represent the ‘Fazzoletto Rosso’ worn by Italian resistance fighters during World War 2, symbolising freedom and rebellion.
