Following fermentation, the wine /1″ target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>spends five years in oak barrels. After resting for one year in the bottle, it is released in the market.

Tasting notes: Rich, with an amber colour and sweet complex aromas. Delicious, long and lingering finish. Typical taste of the Aegean Sea grape varieties, the saltiness the sea offers and the prolonged ageing.

Serving and Food Pairing: Montofoli Estate should be served cold (4 – 6 oC) as an aperitif or a dessert wine. We suggest you accompany it with dried fruits and nuts, fruit tarts and dessert. Chocolate, coffee, full-flavored cheeses, as well as Montofoli Cantucci della Nonna, our own bitter-almond biscuits.
