Red wine with roman spice
Roman red wine conditium paradoxum
The Roman red wine conditium paradoxum is a particularly full-bodied drop, from the finest vines of the Rhine. An exquisite mixture of spices and excellent honey refine the delicate aroma of the Roman red wine. This noble drop tastes excellent with meat dishes as well as with fish and vegetables or just for a cosy evening.
Already the Romans enjoyed the spicy red wine
The Roman red wine conditium paradoxum is based on a recipe of the ancient Romans. Since the wine in ancient Rome was still very sour, the Romans added spices such as saffron, cinnamon and cloves to the drop to give it a more digestible taste. In addition, the honey made the fine grape juice more durable. Today, Roman red wine is considered the forerunner of the mulled wine known and loved today.
Selected spice mixture for a full-bodied aroma
Even today the Roman red wine is still produced almost as in ancient Rome. First the finest vines of the Rhine are used for the production. The finished wine is then boiled up with honey and refined with spices like saffron and pepper.
This results in the unmistakable conditium paradoxum, which has the following characteristics:
- Volume: 0.75 liters
- Allergen information: contains sulfites
- 10.5 % vol.
- Ingredients: red wine, honey, pepper, dates, saffron, laurel
Matching dishes with Roman red wine
It is impossible to say exactly who in ancient Rome came up with the idea of transforming the sour red wine into a spicy drop. But in the oldest cookbook in history, written by the Roman Apicius, it can be stated that the idea is already 2000 years old. Already in ancient Rome, spiced wine was served with the most diverse dishes. Tender pork fillets in sauce, a tasty cream of mushroom soup and fried sole are only some of the dishes that still today go well with Roman wine.
A roman evening - a small suggestion
How and what the Romans ate and drank can still be felt today. Because some dishes of ancient Rome have been preserved until today. These include the asparagus pan or the ham in bread dough. Appropriately, Roman red wine is served in clay jugs and not in fine wine glasses.
