Store in dark, dry place, at a constant temperature below 20° C. Serve at 16°-18° C; swirl and oxygenate the wine in a large glass to concentrate the nose.

CLASSIC PAIRING

Perfect with onion soup and medium-aged cheeses–we suggest Ossolano, Taleggio or Bettelmatt. An impeccable union with tongue in sauce.

UNUSUAL PAIRING

A succulent creamed salt cod? Try it with an exotic Moroccan cous cous. And with dessert… dark chocolate with 100% cocoa (so pure cocoa).
