Organoleptic evaluation and food pairing
Proud, majestic, complex and exuberant: this is TENUTA ULISSE’s gentle giant. A benchmark for the red wine category.
Very dark ruby red, wide and complex to the nose, fruity, with a prune and cherry jam aroma, with notes of liquorice and cocoa. Very well balanced. Warm and satisfying.
Excellent as an after-dinner wine, or to go with red meat, game, quails and richly flavoured dishes.
Very good with well-aged cheeses, such as parmesan, pecorino and gorgonzola. Meditation wine.
