Description

Heavy, concentrated and intensely sweet-fruited, raspberry coulis combines with dark chocolate and velvety tannins to create an experience akin to liquid raspberry ruffle. This blend of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (60%), Sangiovese (20%) and Merlot (20%) is initially dried on the vines, with extended ageing on the skins after fermentation to further increase flavour and colour.

Despite the sweetness it’s technically dry so pairs beautifully with meat dishes with fruit sauces, or tomato-based dishes. It also goes surprisingly well with Tiramisu although we’re not supposed to admit we tried it!

Organically-farmed Collefrisio, the project of third-generation winemakers Amedeo De Luca and Antonio Patricelli, is located in the hills of Frisa, Chieti province. The charming azienda vinicola (wine farm) features a huge loft nestled among the vineyards that contains a magnificent wine tasting and dining room for the many epicurean events that Collefrisio runs over the year, while its quiet, peaceful cellars lie underneath the vines.
