Tasting

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.


Serving Temperature: 6°C


Ageing Potential: Should be drunk in its early years, although certain generous vintages can hold surprises in store for several decades.
