Pì Joco – Pantelleria’s red I.G.T.

etichetta rossoThis  red wine is produced in very small quantities (about 700 bottles per year), and this is the reason for its name: “Pi’Joco”, which in the local dialect means “for fun”. The limited production is due to the difficulty in finding the Perricone, a native grape variety once more common on the island and then uprooted in favour of Zibibbo that, with the production of raisins, promised higher revenues for farmers. The Perricone is a great variety, with high coloring capacity, the wine is therefore an intense purple-ruby color, dark, impenetrable, a feast for the eyes and for the palate!

Characteristics: purplish red color with hints of ruby​​, deep, almost impenetrable; intense aroma, with hints of blackberry and mulberry. The taste is dry, warm, with hints of berries.

Pairings: red and game meat, aged cheeses
