FABULOUS RED WINES FOR A CHILLY FALL NIGHT
Saffredi Fattoria Le Pupille has an impenetrable ruby red in color, this wine offers aromas of red fruits, red currant, blackberries and spices such as cloves, cinnamon and chocolate. On the palate, the wine is well-rounded and velvety, engaging all senses with majestic balance. The long persistence allows for enjoyment of the aromatic complexity.
Costanti Brunello di Montalcino is delicately scented, this offers underbrush, pressed violet and wild berry aromas. It’s medium-bodied and loaded with elegance, delivering crushed raspberry, Morello cherry, licorice and a hint of pipe tobacco set against taut, refined tannins. Bright acidity provides balance.
