We’ve already taken the efforts to search and select a wine to pair best with your ravioli. A Durif would go perfectly well when paired with your pasta.

Intense aromas of violets, blackberry and subtle chocolate herald this mouth staining Durif’s inky dark fruit characters of blackberry, anise and smoky liquorice that fill the concentrated palate. The French oak and dense tannins add complexity and depth that persists to a long flavoursome finish.

The Metal Label Durif is one such red wine, made from Petite Sirah grapes, and has 15.0% AVV which will surely make your dad tap his feet under the table. It is exclusively available with Monika Enterprises and serving it at 16-18°C is most ideal. So swirl, sniff and sip!
