Cherry bread in shape

I created this salty-sweet bread with sour cherries after having tasted at a restaurant in Rome.

I wasn't attracted to the texture but very sweet contrast of acid sour cherries in syrup. Then I wanted to bring these flavors in a coarser bread, more and son party alveolated a biga prepared 20 h before, that allows me to have a proper acidity but not too pushy and a pasta cooked right on the alveolus.
