The newest addition to the exclusive Folino Estate Black Label wine collection has hit our shelves. L’Amore di Lidia joins the Black Label collection and is available for tasting in our Tasting Room, by the glass in our Restaurant, and is bottled and ready for purchase.
Named after the founder’s mother, this rich and sweet red aperitif style Tannat is slow fermented and gently aged in barrels to achieve and age-old essence of love. The light oak lends to smoky characteristics with flavors of silky plum, cherry, and fig. Pairs well with rich and decadent desserts, and can be used to sip before a meal to stimulate your appetite.
The Black Label Collection including Sangiovese, Barbera, Tannat, Valentino, and now L’Amore di Lidia, features handcrafted wines representing the age-old Italian style traditions and skills of passionate winemaking. Released in early spring of 2018, the Black Label collection quickly became popular among Folino Estate guests, with favorites like Tannat and Sangiovese flying off the shelves, and Valentino already selling out!
Artfully oaked in French barrels, each wine is an exclusive, limited release and will age perfectly for the oenophile’s collection. The higher tannins present allow each variety to pair well with rich dark meats & game, earthy foods and herbaceous cheeses. Decanting is recommended to bring out the characters hidden in every bottle. The addition of L’Amore di Lidia will add another unique flavor profile to the collection, and another opportunity for experienced wine lovers to expand their required tastes, and enjoy the richer side of life.
