Paride Chiovini, “AFRODITE” Vespolina DOC – 2015
Grape : Vespolina ( Ughetta ).
A recent Dna profiling of the indigenous Vespolina grape has established a parent-offspring relationship of this red wine grape variety along with Nebbiolo.
This wine is delicate yet decisive, it is fresh and fruity and exalts the contrast with the fragrances and spicy flavours. Intense nose, with a wide opening to macerated rose, continuing with fresh fruit and fine spices, such as pepper and cinnamon. On the palate, it is intense, dry, with hints of red fruits and rounded with a discrete degree of acidity, very persistent and pleasantly slightly bitter aftertaste.
Fermetation and maturation in stainless steel vats for 6 months.
Food Pairing : this wine can be drunk throughout the meal; it elegantly accompanies appetizers, Salam della Duja – a soft mild salami from the Italian Piedmont region, Fidighina – a cooked pork salami, first courses and second courses based on white meat and is excellent with fresh water fish.
