Independent Wine is launching three romantic gift sets for St Valentine’s Day: pairing boutique wines from Italy with award-winning artisan Velvet Truffles® by Iain Burnett, the Highland Chocolatier.
Each gift set includes a bottle of UK-exclusive wine and a box of Iain Burnett’s world-famous Velvet Truffles®. Buyers can choose from the following three wines:
Ridolfi Rosso di Montalcino DOC
This award-winning wine is a perfect example of the Ridolfi winery’s fresh and elegant style. It has delicate aromas of redcurrant, red plum, strawberry, raspberry, chocolate, sweet cake and dried red cherries.
Kurtatsch Brenntal Gewurztraminer Riserva, Alto Adige DOC
Packed with flavours of grapefruit peel, panettone, candied orange and honey, this aromatic Gewurtztraminer tastes like an Italian holiday in a glass.
Kurtatsch Mazon Pinot Noir, Alto Adige DOC
With fresh flavours of wild strawberry, mint, and forest floor, this wine instantly transports you to the Alpine woodlands of Alto Adige.
For each gift-set, Iain has created special pairings with certain Velvet Truffles® in order to accentuate the different textures and flavours which often go unnoticed in the wines. He has carefully curated various fruity and spicy truffles to create a match made in heaven.
