Rich and bold red wine with aromas of black cherry, cinnamon and pepper. Decanter Bronze

Notti di Luna Piena, which translates to Full Moon Nights, is a luxurious tasting red wine from the Piave DOC region – which was recently awarded a more prestigious DOCG status. Rich aromas of black cherry and wild blackberry meet intense notes of cinnamon, vanilla, leather and pepper. A fantastic partner for dark chocolate, this full-bodied red wine has excellent ageing potential. It also has a very ancient origin, dating back to the times of Marco Polo.

Useful tips

Pairings:  Raboso lends itself to accompanying game, perhaps seasoned with spices; important cheeses such as parmesan and aged cheese. It manages to give its best with fatty dishes where acidity cleans the palate.

Serving temperature: 18-20 ° C.

Storage: In cool places, away from light and heat sources.

    Find myself comparing every other wine I try to this full bodied champion and it is my favourite by far. If you like a hearty red, you will love this.
