L'Affronto

Affronto is made from Colorino and Mammolo – two rare, native grape varieties. The fragrance and style of Mammolo blend perfectly with the power and colour of Colorino. After ten years ageing in stainless steel barrels and one year (minimum) in bottle, Affronto is characterized by a deep ruby red colour with bright purple tinges and an intense bouquet of ripe fruit with flower and spicy notes. It is suitable for a long-lasting ageing. It matches perfectly with Tuscan “Cinta Senese” meat (for instance “Finocchiona” and “Mortadella di Siena”), but feel free to combine it with your favourite dishes!
