Residual Sugar Content: At least 10 g/l (can be really sweet on generous vintages).
Sensory Characteristics: Bright, crystal clear appearance of raspberry red or with glints of salmon pink. Notes of small red fruits (strawberry, redcurrant), rose, English candy, with a fresh finale of mint and white pepper. The ultimate wines for gourmands, tender rosés are round and mellow on the palate with a liveliness that compensates for the sweet sensation and refreshes the finish.
