DESCRIPTION 

This Futsushu fully expresses the taste profile of rice: umami, acidity and dryness come together to form a single flavor characterized by an elegant body with clean, dry and persistent sensations. The perception of alcohol is lower, rounder, more rounded and elegant than usual.  Blend of aging up to four years (a sake aged 1 year + a sake aged up to 4 years). 

Interesting aromas and, on the palate, marinated mushrooms, cocoa bean, with good acidity (1.7), and warm umami notes. At an organoleptic level it is a balanced sake, with aromas of almond, cream, dried fruit and licorice, nutmeg. Very round. 

We really like because it is a very pleasant sake, also suitable for beginners, direct and without compromise. It is also a symbolic sake of this winery, chosen by emperors and public figures as the sake of events, therefore a special sake. Finally it was the sake drunk by the samurai!  

FOOD PAIRING 

When heated it is excellent with mushrooms; fresh with creamy ice creams. It goes well with cheeses: fresh with ricotta, at room temperature with cheeses such as gorgonzola. It gives its best at room temperature and is excellent with olives, tomato-based recipes or fatty fish.  

In Japanese cuisine: dishes with accentuated umami (Kobe, Ikura - salmon roe - oysters, stews, ramen, tempura etc).   

 
CURIOSITY' 

Kenbishi sake on the label does not indicate the percentage of smoothing of the rice grains; the reason is that the seimaibuai is changed every year to keep the same taste. "Taste" rather than "title": this is their policy. 

Kenbishi is Japan's oldest sake company, founded in 1505! Its traces are found in the history books and in the paintings of the time we can find the characteristic logo.
