Delight someone special to you with this exclusive gift set, featuring a bottle of Rosso di Montalcino wine paired with a box of Highland Chocolatier Velvet Truffles® (RRP £33.95).

This fruity red wine boasts zingy flavours of redcurrant, dried cherries and rich chocolate. These are drawn out by the curated truffle selection which variously features notes of cracked black pepper, heather honey and rose.

Both the wine, made by Ridolfi, and the artisan truffles, crafted by Iain Burnett, are award-winning. Iain has chosen each Velvet Truffle® to emphasise and complement the different textures and flavours which often go unnoticed in this deep Rosso di Montalcino wine.

Each Velvet Truffle® is delicately covered in a paper-thin layer of chocolate before being decorated with colourful and intricate cocoa butter designs. The chocolates have won 40 prestigious awards including the Academy of Chocolate Awards Gold and the Great Taste Awards Triple Gold.
