Abbazia Santa Anastasia Passomaggio 2014 box - red
Generous and sincere wine.
An elegant passage in barriques makes its tannic note enveloping which transforms into a silky tasting pleasure.
Vigorous in its aromas, it narrates the three grape varieties of origin (Nero d 'Avola, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon) among aromas of cherry, blackberry, currant, lavender, vanilla.
Exciting with meat dishes, game but also risottos and first courses with a strong taste.
