MATCHING: The Fattoria del Colle (in the village of Trequanda, in the province of Siena) It produces a white wine made from grapes Traminer (an Igt Toscana) called "San Chimento" (medieval language). It is the ancient name of San Clemente, Patron of the chapel from the 15th century, which is located inside the estate. This wine smells of peaches and apples, with soft shades of white flowers; has a fair balance between acidity and alcohol. We recommend you with this recipe where all the main flavors are very delicate, except for the flavor that comes from the suppressed trevigiana, a typical salami that deserves to be enjoyed even by itself, or even with a good glass of wine.
