Closure Type: Cork
Wine Style: Medium Bodied
Medium ruby in colour, this wine has an intense fragance of red berries. Juicy and fruit-driven style with fruit character like on the nose. Nice grip at the end. Cabutto makes its Langhe Rosato, by tapping from must during the production of Barolo. The process means that phenols, colour and taste are subdued in the rosé wine and concentrated in the red wine. Suitable for light summer dishes with fish and shellfish. 100% Nebbiolo.
Salami and other dry cured sausage (typically with fennel) would complement the Prosciutto really well. Salumi is fact is an Italian word for “salted meats,” which includes preserved whole cuts of meat. Versions include Soppressata (made from dry-cured, coarse-ground pork with red pepper flakes from Southern Italy) and Finocchiona (skinny Italian salami packed with fennel seeds). Typically a not-too tannic but fruity red will work best, especially if they have some balancing acidity to cut through all that fat like Barbera or you could try its premium neighbour Nebbiolo (ideally an elegant and not too heavy Barbaresco). If you feel brave, try this fun Rosé made from Nebbiolo which has juicy, concentrated flavours and hints of firm tannins so will work wonders with cured meats. This dark rosé from Piedmont is mind-blowing and perfect for this dish!
