Velenosi Vino di Visciole

Drink like a one-eyed Duke. An aromatized wine native to Italy’s Marche region, Visciola blends the syrup of local sour cherries and red wine. The mixture then re-ferments to produce sweet dessert wine redolent of cherries and perfect with chocolate or blue cheese. Visciola was also the favorite wine of Duke Federico da Montefeltro, who after losing his right eye to a sword blow in the 15th century, had the bridge of his nose removed to restore enough field of vision to avoid assassination attempts.
