Tasting Set Includes:
- Boutari Moschofilero
Brilliant, crystal-clear, white yellow color with green reflections. Intense floral and fruity bouquet dominated by aromas of white rose, melon and citrus. A well-balanced and fresh wine with intense flavor and long aromatic aftertaste with notes of orange blossom and grapefruit.
- Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria
An intriguing wine with an extraordinary vital energy based on wild fruits, wild strawberries, mulberry and pomegranate. An extremely gastronomic version of Cerasuolo which we like very much for its meaty peppery notes. In the mouth the wine reflects its olfactory impressions and thus we happily re-encounter the black pepper mixed with carob and sweet cherries. Quick on the palate with a very savoury rounded finish with hints of mulberry. In the right season, perfect with a slice of seared tuna, with chopped mushrooms or with feathered game, its harmony with pizza is a surprise throughout the year.
- Blandy's 5 Year Old Malmsey Madeira
Clear, amber color with tinges of gold; a bouquet of dried fruit, vanilla, wood and toffee with a smooth, sweet finish and an excellent balance between the fruit and acidity. Blandy’s 5 year Malmsey is fined and does not require decanting. It is a superb accompaniment to dessert dishes, especially fruit, cakes, rich chocolate puddings and cheeses. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
