Tasting Notes Drink: 

Tenuta Frecciarossa has just 20 ha of vineyard within the ‘Oltrepo Pavese’ zone of Lombardy. This extraordinary and elegant white is made from hand-picked Pinot Nero grapes vinified as a white wine by removing the dark skins, in a similar fashion to the production of Champagne Blanc De Noire from red Pinot Noir grapes. It is richly intense with flavours of white flowers, peaches and citrus fruits. Well balanced and elegant, with the powerful fruit finishing long and complex, backed by a firm acidity. A rare style.

Pair With: Mild goat, soft and creamy cheese, and crumblies, mild blues.

Our Perfect Cheeseboard: Delice Des Cremiers, Chaumes, Montagnolo, Vulscombe, Miller’s Damsel Buttermilk, Ottervale Quince Jelly, Dried Peaches and Quality Pistachios.
