Accompanying Foods
This fragrant, lively, cleansing, palatable "Red", when young,is best served with dishes containing rich sauces and also meat based dishes. 

Locally, it is served with a flavoursome and precious preparation of white truffles and unions with this wine. 

At Talamello, towards the end of November, Formaggio di fossa is unburied from its bed of straw within a tufa. The combination of this cheese with this wine creates a particularly unique flavour.
