The winery’s flagship wine, Alfonso Alfonzi is a result of a blend of wines produced from red grape varieties in outstanding vintages. These are then aged in oak. Vibrant ruby red, with great complexity and soft tannins the bouquet is full of spicy aromas from black pepper to coffee as well as notes of small red fruits. The wine is enchanting, soft and dry with a long finish. It is perfect with cured meats as well as grilled and roasted red meats and also makes a great accompaniment to meditation.
