||Red fortified wine dessert wine aromatised
||Born in Piedmont in the second half of the 19th century like a medicinal wine with exceptional therapeutic properties against cold illnesses. In a short time this wine spread all over Italy, thank to the perfect balance bitter-sweet given by calissaja chincona bark, gentian root, spices and aromatic grasses, that make it an ideal aperitif wine, for meditation and to satisfy the most discerning palates. It has recently been discovered as the ideal partner of the noble dark chocolate and of those sweets that have cocoa as the main ingredient.
||The extracts obtained from a separate infusion in alcohol of calissaja chincona bark, quassa wood, gentian root, cardamom seeds, juniper berries, tonka bean, mace, chamomile and other natural flavours are combined with Bergera Barolo and then the wine is kept for about six months in small French oak barrels to acheive the right balance among different components.
||“Traditional” aging for at least 3 years in medium-large Slavonian oak barrels.
