Merlot: ruby-red delight

Merlot and Ticino go together just like brasato (braised beef) and polenta. 80% of vineyards are given over to the Merlot grape – with growing success, thanks to innovative winemakers: wines such as Sassi Grossi can compete with the best from Bordeaux. Ticino's liquid sunshine tastes superb in a romantic grotto (traditional inn), enjoyed with alp cheese and salametti sausage, but Merlot also goes well with gourmet dishes. And it makes exciting blends, too – such as with Bondola, Ticino's only native grape variety.

Via Valtellina

Läckerli translates roughly as small and scrumptious: a fitting name for this sweet delicacy. This Basel biscuit, reminiscent of gingerbread, was once only eaten at New Year, but it has since become a bestseller, exported all over the world. Because a genuine Basel Läckerli is quite hard, a connoisseur will break it into pieces, and let them dissolve in the mouth. That way the full bouquet of flavours comes to the fore: honey, almonds, candied fruits and spices such as cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.
