Muffato San Lorenzo
SAUVIGNON IGT - COLLI APRUTINI
The noble mold reduces the content of water in the grapes and it concentrates the sugars and the aromas, giving the Muffato San Lorenzo a harmonic and unmistakable taste. Tasting notes: a light gold yellow colour with an aroma that recalls peaches and honey. A dessert wine, well structured and very harmonic.
Pairings: It goes well with well-aged and blue cheeses like Roquefort or Gorgonzola. It is the ideal wine pairing for foie gras.
