Velenosi Querciantica Vino e Visciole
In the past sour cherry wine was produced to make robust and tannic wine more enjoyable. According to his biographer and trusted librarian Vespasiano da Bisticci, the duke Federico da Montefeltro “hardly drink wine if it was not cherry or pomegranate wine” (“quasi non beveva vino se non de ciriege o de granate”). Lately, it was considered a wine for women, to present to the fair sex for its fragrances, its smoothness and roundness. Currently, it is considered as a meditation wine, to taste and savour in company, rediscovering ancient flavours.
