Go Red!

December 2019
Package for 2 people

Red like the fire, the heat, the passion. Gorizia wears red in December.  Red like the Rose of Gorizia, an Italian excellence and the most expensive radicchio in the world. It is sought after by chefs all over the world for its beauty and gastronomic peculiarities. The leaves are large and forming the shape of an open rose. Its beauty and perfection make it one of the most special ingredient of the winter. The harvest of the radicchio, carried out by hand, takes place from the end of November to the beginning of December, and starts after the first frosts. It arrives on the table in the days before Christmas. To be enjoyed with a good glass of red, rich in tannins, to warm the body and the soul.
