This wine is a blend of our Pergola Rosso wine with a particular variety of wild cherries called “Visciole”. In july, when cherries are mature, are picked and mixed together with wine and sugar to obtain a second temperature controlled fermentation. The result is a sweet, delicate, particularly aromatic wine that marries well with desserts and chocolate based sweets.
