WINES

Il Pollenza

Pollenza has always been a surprising wine, every single year expressing itself by telling something different and unique.
The grapes are produced in a terroir still to be discovered, sometimes difficult and austere, but which, at each harvest always manages to pleasantly surprise and strongly impress all its character, enhancing all the virtues of Cabernet Sauvignon and other grapes with the opulence and refined elegance that make up the blend.

Aromas

Pollenza respectfully reveals a unique terroir, with wines with deep ruby red tones.
The smell is enhanced by intense aromas of fully ripe red and black berries, which blend with subtle spicy and balsamic notes.
On the palate it expresses an elegant balance between a complex and mature aromatic expression of great freshness and a vibrant and intense silky soft tannic texture.

Pairings

Perfect with game, it is excellent in combination with braised boar, rich dishes, and slow-cooked meats.
