The search for a suitable match for the restaurant's speciality, suckling pig, demands a fleshy wine with a good structure on the palate, a wine with heavy, abundant tears and an intense passage across the palate, an aroma and taste of wood and new leather, without the slightest hint of astringency, rounded, ideal for the suckling pig and the delicate, crispy roast skin. The restaurant also offers an excellent variety of game and pasture cuisine.
