Santagostino Rosso, Firriato, Sicily

Drunk at Donafugata Golf & Spa in Sicily. Firriato is a leading house in Sicily. Her wines are characterized by freshness, extract and elegance. This Santagostino recently won the highest award of 3 glasses in the Italian wine guide “Gambera Rosso”. 8 months matured in American oak barrels. The taste is firm, ripe and fresh at the same time with aromas of forest fruit, black cherries and a pepper. We ate a ‘Pollo di Campania’ with ‘Riso Ragusana’ and a béarnaise sauce. Fantastic!
