The charm of Mongrana does not take long to reveal. Well-defined aromas of ripe fruit, morello cherry, blackberry and blueberry jump out of the glass, anticipating notes of kirsch, ivy, and pine needles.
On the palate, it offers a juicy, fresh sip with soft tannins and a complex bouquet of leather, coffee powder and cocoa enriched by a touch of liquorice. The long finale is savoury, with a mineral note that persists in the mouth.
Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
This fruit-forward wine has present, yet soft tannins that make it easy to drink. Think of Mongrana as the wine you bring to a party when you don’t know the host’s taste. Its energetic personality is perfect for your Tuesday night Pizza Margherita with vegan Mozzarella and fresh Basil.
The Mediterranean feel and flavour of this wine lend itself to the herbs of the region like Oregano and Thyme sprinkled over a Zucchini Tian or a Vegan Panzanella Salad. If you fancy something heartier try it with Chickpea Soup with Farro and Porcini Mushrooms.
