Tasting Notes

This attractive, deep rose’ wine is made with 100% Aglianico grapes with only a brief maceration on the skins. The typical varietal notes of red berries and cherries are prominent on the nose; on the palate the wine is decadent and full but delightfully fruity and refreshing at the same time. Serve well chilled as an aperitif, seafood dishes, light pastas. This rose shows the backbone of its grape varietal and it is perfect for a summer barbecue!
