Description

An orange wine with a fermentation on its grape skins ranging between 25 and 45 days, then aged in Slavonian oak barrels. It is characterized by hints of ripe fruit, honey and spices notes that support a fuller, more intense palate, without lacking the mineral notes, slight tannicity and nice acidity. Monte del Cuca is a wine that knows how to satisfy any taste. It pairs well with various kinds of white and boiled meats. Extremely keen to pair with fatty fishes such as eel, salmon, or cod. Recommended also with medium-aged cheeses.
