PASSITO IGT – DESSERT WINE

48,19

The Passito IGT – dessert wine Carlo Ferragù is called Terre della Sorte. “Sorte” derives from the term “Sortedo”, fate, destiny, word linked to the floods of the river Progno which
following huge rainfalls used to be a threat for the cultivations nearby.

It colors the glass of a full noble red.

Characteristic is the intense red fruit flavor, with a spiced taste of cherry jam and morello-cherry jam that delights the palate with smoothness.

The Passito IGT -Dessert Wine – Carlo Ferragù can be combined with almost every dessert, from cream to pastry.
Mr. Carlo suggests to drink it with fine dark chocolate.
