Tasting Notes

  

Re del  Sole (100% Sagrantino) Cantina Leonucci

Color: Dark purple, bordering on black, reminiscent of eggplant skin.

Aromas: Sweet black cherry liquor, layers of complex spice – with vanilla

and fresh herbs – and hints of leather and fresh cut cedar.

Flavors: The deep, powerful fruit – loaded with black cherry and ripe berries

– is matched with incredibly well-backboned tannins and acidity. Multiple

tiers of velvet-textured fruit and floral flavors linger for what seems like

minutes on the palate.

Food Pairing: The ultimate in decadence would be to serve this alongside filet

mignon with a sweet balsamic syrup and goat cheese drizzle.

Montignanello Cantina Leonucci

The wine has an intense, bright ruby color while the aroma is clear and intense after a little breathing the aroma. The bouquet has notes of blood orange, kirsch and mulberry along with slightly smoky sensations. The tannins in the dense mouthfeel uphold it and make it nervous, while the acidity is light and the progression and texture are good. The aftertaste is of spice, fruit and ash and is decidedly intriguing. The wine has an intense, bright ruby color while the aroma is clear and intense after a little breathing the aroma.

Food Sampling

Occelli al Pepe nero e Bacche rosa

Produced from sheep’s and cow’s milk, Occelli al Pepe Nero e Bache Rosa ages for at least four months in the cellars of Valcasotto where it matures on boards of wood of this valley. In the body, grains of black and pink pepper enrich the range of its flavours and aromas

Parmigiano Reggiano Gennari  60 mesi

After 60 months the Parmigiano Reggiano is very aged, the taste is more strong and intense and the notes of spices turn out definitely predominant. A great variety of flavours is recognizable in this cheese. The rich spicy character, with a prominent citrus taste and herbs aroma, is characteristic of its fragrant flavour, tasty but never hot. The pale yellow colour derives from a long aging process, which leaves to this cheese a nubby texture, with the typical chip fracture. The milk and the flavours deriving from the aging contribute to create a complex and elegant cheese to be accompanied by the sweet notes of water-melon mustard or the soft acacia honey…all linked to the magic of a good Pantelleria Passito. The matching by opposition of the strong sensation of this cheese and of the sweetness of the liquorous wine makes this experience exciting.
