THE WINE EXPERIENCE
Food & wine: it will find its best pairing with red grilled or oven-baked meats, game and aged cheeses. If served in large, big-bellied goblets it can be uncorked a few minutes before, otherwise a couple of hours earlier; excellent at 18°C (64° F).
Occasions: Tancredi is the perfect partner while reading a book or listening to music. We also recommend it for business lunches.
Art & wine: if you remember Alain Delon in the famous movie that Luchino Visconti made from Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's The Leopard, you will see that this wine reflects the elegance and ambition of that "revolutionary" man. The label refers to the wineries at Contessa Entellina but they are placed on a cloud as in a mirage, as in "Viaggio a Donnafugata," composed by Nino Rota for Visconti.
