Tasting Notes

‘Ponte Loreto’ is purplish red in color. There are delicate aromas of red currant and mulberry on the nose, which follow through on the fresh and pleasant palate. A typical varietal of the area, this wine pairs well with the regional cuisine of Lazio, pasta amatriciana, grilled lamb, artichokes, and medium-aged cheeses.
