Ruby red in colour with purple reflections, this wine the Lake Caldaro region has delicate aromas reminiscent of violets and a hint of bitter almonds. With its fruity and balanced taste, it is an ideal accompaniment to appetisers, country-style snacks and hearty home cooking, yet also to the classic pizza or meat and poultry dishes. This wine should be served and drunk slightly chilled yet not cold.
Produced personally by the Martelli family, in their own pasta factory in Lari, in the hills of Pisa in Tuscany.
