Happy weekend dear readers!
Today we’re talking about a native Ligurian wine, the Rossese di Dolceacqua.
In these weeks, I took a short break from the blog, in order to prepare the exams of the Sommelier course! Now that I’ve finished them and finally and officially I become a Sommelier, I can dedicate myself more to what I love: wine!
Now let’s come back to the Rossese di Dolceacqua.
Produced by Tenuta Anfosso, from the same Rossese grape, this 2010 Ligurian red wine is really soft, quite fresh, quite tannic and with a good alcohol structure.
At the nose, perfumes of ripe red fruits, olives and a hint of white pepper.
On the palate is very soft with a good persistence. It is a full-bodied wine, even if with a delicate tannin .
Due its characteristics, I recommend it in pairing with medium aged cheese (e.g. Pecorino Toscano, young Parmesan cheese and washed-rind cheeses, like Taleggio) and grilled meat. I tried it with a roast duck and it was not bad!
And now, let’s celebrate the weekend to begin!
