Matching Food and Wine: Potato Focaccia – Red Wine Corte Fiore, Lupi Reali Appassimento

The Lupi Reali Appassimento is a Montepulciano-based red wine from the Italian region Abruzzo. The use of the appassimento process creates a wonderfully pleasing fruity wine with elements of dark cherries, spices and herbs. The aftertaste brings elements of ripe grape sweetness.

This wine is often served with potato-based dishes and pizzas but it also perfectly matches with different combinations of pasta.

We prepared a potato focaccia to better savour this wine and enhance its characteristics.  You should believe us when we say that this was a rather apt combination!

This wine is imported to Denmark from Vinimondo.dk, a wine wholesaler that works with some of the best wine suppliers in Italy, Portugal, France and Spain.
