Big Banyan Bellissima is a late harvest Muscat dessert wine, featuring a plethora of exciting and indulgent flavors. The secret to creating the magical flavors lies in the late harvest of high-quality Muscat grapes. Furthermore, the Muscat grapes are sun-soaked naturally, a process that improves the aromas and sugar content. With its intense and sweet flavors, Big Banyan Bellissima ensures a satiating end to every meal. Another great thing about the wine is its resplendent yellow color that is accentuated by the shades of amber and hints of light green. The rich yellow color symbolizes the eternal sunshine and it’s a way of raising a toast to all the good things in life.
At Big Banyan wineries, the motto is to celebrate every moment. It’s to celebrate the moment when the grapes are harvested, when the grapes are transformed into wine, and the moment when the wine is un-bottled for the delight of everyone. To make this journey possible, the company follows a meticulous process of winemaking. The finest grapes are handpicked from the acclaimed vineyards of Nasik valley and Ramnagar, and transported to the state-of-the-art winery in Goa. This is where the company’s chief winemaker, Lucio Matricardi, from Italy, gets to work his magic. Lucio utilizes his traditional winemaking secrets, his immense love and passion for winemaking, and his years of experience to create the perfect aromas and flavors.
The moment you sniff Big Banyan Bellissima, it reminds you of being in an orchard that has pears and apricots in full bloom. As you take in the aromas deeply, you can also sense the delightful, sweet scent of flowers, raisins and dried walnuts. The palate is velvety soft and sweet and the finish is smooth, featuring a minute hint of mineral.
Big Banyan Bellissima works well with various desserts such as fresh cream cake, crème de chocolat, etc. You can also have it with medium-seasoned cheeses.
