Product Description

Deep goldencolor with creamy and white foam, Toccadibò soon recalls us a Belgian golden strong ale. Clean and dry in the nose with strong but not overhelming alcoholic notes soon followed by triumphant and rich fruity notes of peach and apricot, well balanced by aromatic hop notes with a hint of chive. Warming mouthfeel in the palate face well a nice dryness giving us a spicy, clean and sharp aftertaste, Thats why, despite the alcohol strength, we are wishing soon a further glass. A very pleasant taste of amaretto will not escape to an experienced beer-taster. Perfect pairings are with white meat as veal, chicken, turkey and rabbit but it could be surprising excellent with game dishes to defat. Toccadibò could fight with fat matured cheeses and it could be irresistibile with fruit-tart and with amaretti.

Details

Varietal: Abbey Tripel

Region: Italy

Region Description:

Makes nearly as much wine as France, but lags behind in their classification system. As a result, Italian wine isn’t taken as seriously as French wine. Most Italian wine is made from native grape varieties that don’t grow well elsewhere, such as Nebbiolo and Sangiovese. The most important regions are Piedmont, where Barolo and Barbaresco dominate, Tuscany, home to Chianti, Montepulciano, and the Super-Tuscans (a collection of relatively new reds), and the Northeastern region, where you’ll find Soave, Valpolicella, and Bardolino. Italy’s soils and climates are varied and ideally suited for viticulture, from the Alpine foothills in the north to the Mediterranean coast in the South. Its hilly landscape provides sun and cooler temperatures, even in the warmest regions. Italy has two categories of fine wines. DOCG, which means regulated and guaranteed place name, refers to a small group of elite wines. DOB wines are those with regulated (but not guaranteed) place names. A lower tier of table wines are grouped into IGT wines, which indicate the location on the label, and ordinary table wines, which carry no geographical indication except, “Italy.”
