Visciolata del Cardinale Cherry Dessert Wine

50cl / 14%
A remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon-based dessert wine, made by storing sour cherries with sugar in the sun, then drawing off the juice. The cherries are then added to barrels of red grape must before fermentation, before being drained off and the sugared cherry juice returned to the wine barrels to vinify for another 6 months before bottling. Fantastic stuff on its own, and works particularly well in cocktails.

    We have this in our area of Italy. I made an adaptation of a sloe gin recipe this year using wild sour cherries, sugar and vodka which went down very well with my Italian friends
