This wine, decidedly grease-cutting, exalts the Po valley tradition, adding vivacity with its sparklingly joyful blend of fresh, vinous flavours and notes of blackcurrant and violet.
This wine makes a good pairing with Salami Mantovano del Po.
Fairly coarse-cut salami with a precise but at the same time delicate, mild, and highly perfumed flavour, with decisive hints of red wine.
It also makes an interesting pairing with Ciccioli Mantovani.
Ciccioli Mantovani (pork cracklings) are a typical by-product from processing pork meat in the countryside near Mantua. Pancetta trimmings are cut into small pieces and allowed to cook slowly in copper cauldrons. Once they have cooled and been pressed, they take on a crispy texture with a golden colour. They are extremely savoury and fanciful and are eaten as a starter or aperitif.
