Visciola – Beverage flavoured with wine and sour cherries

Visciolata Terracruda vino e visciole

This is an old dessert beverage dating back to the age of Federico da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino. In the fifteenth century, his friend, bookseller and later biographer, Vespasiano de’ Bisticci wrote: “He drank no wine that was not made with cherries or pomegranate”, the sour-cherry  wine that our winery produces from a traditional recipe.
Our best Pergola Doc Rosso is blended with a special variety of indigenous wild cherries called visciole spontaneously growing in the Montefeltro countryside. In July, when ripe, cherries are handpicked and blended with the wine with the addition of sugar. The blend then undergoes secondary fermentation for a few months at a controlled temperature.

ORGANOLEPTIC PROPERTIES
Deep, intense ruby to the sight. A scent of sour cherry to the nose. Sweet, soft, warm, and slightly tannic but also fresh and balanced in the mouth. Its taste is intense and long-lingering with a well-perceptible sour cherry, soft and fresh flavour.
