Pairings with Ammasso

03 December. NEWS

We would love to delight your palate with two recipes matched with our flagship wine, Ammasso.

An icon of Barone Montalto, a wine coming from partially dried grapes on the vines (Nero d'Avola, Nerello Mascalese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot). Very rich but with a fine balance. A full bodied and seductive wine, which expresses Sicily in the best way and go perfectly with the most typical products of this island. From a simple but refined starter to an important main course.

Try them and you'll be amazed!

Enjoy!
