Wine Tasting

Terre Di San Leonardo

Tasting Notes
Color: Brilliant ruby red
Bouquet: Fruit rich when young, evolving to notes of ripe plum with an undertone of grassy notes ove
Flavor: Dry, soft and well-balanced with long aromatics
Pairings: Perfect for rice and pasta dishes with tomato, white meats, grilled meats and soft cheeses

Brolo Campofiorin Oro
Rosso Del Veronese IGT
Dry, rich, velvety, complex and elegant.
Made in the same approachable style as Campofiorin, of which this is a cuvée version, using the original production method inspired by the technique employed for Amarone.

Given extra complexity with the addition to the blend of the special Oseleta grape, rediscovered by Masi, ageing in small oak casks accentuates its international style.

Tasting Notes
Look: deep ruby red.
Nose: berry fruit, preserves and vanilla.
Palate: rich, full-bodied, packed with baked fruit, and hints of cocoa and vanilla on the finish.

Food Pairing
A wine with rare versatility. Good with pasta dressed with rich sauces (based on meat or mushrooms), good with risotto, grilled red meat, roasts and well-aged cheeses.

Tasting Notes
Color: Straw yellow with greenish highlights
Bouquet: Notes of white peach, green peppercorn and pleasant sage hints
Flavor: Dry and full-bodied with great minerality

Vign’Asmara
Vigneti Delle Dolomiti IGT
Smooth and elegant wine with great complexity and character. An expression of the Trentino traditions of the aristocratic Conti Bossi Fedrigotti family. The pronounced perfumes of the Traminer grape, a typical Trentino variety, are combined in an unusual and innovative way with international Chardonnay flavours. Ageing in French oak barriques enhances the elegance and the personality of this wine.

Grape Varieties Chardonnay, Traminer.
Tasting Notes
Look: light-filled yellow with golden reflections.
Nose: contrast between sweet vanilla aromas and intense spiciness.
Palate: fruity and full bodied with hints of apricots and pineapple
and a slight touch of butteriness.
