Sartiglia

Life is a merry-go-round.

Some pastimes stand the test of time and become traditions. Because they conjure up emotions we can share with our oldest friends. The Sartiglia (an ancient equestrian tournament) is precisely this, an ancient pleasure that is well worth repeating and celebrating.

The aroma of wild blackberries and ripe prunes is intense and distinctive. Its ruby red colour fills the glass, offering a warm, full-bodied mouthfeel. It is the perfect accompaniment to barbecued red meat, game and strong cheeses.
