Beautiful pale pink dress with beautiful bright reflections. The nose is fine, subtle and elegant with floral aromas and aniseed. Mouth, right and greedy, expresses fresh red fruit slightly menthol. The finish is long and persistent, that of a fine rosé, the almond with a hint of bitterness. Drink as an aperitif but especially with a nice Mediterranean cuisine.

Terroir

Volcanic, clay and limestone.
The climate is typically Mediterranean, warm and sunny with low rainfall. Winters are mild, summers are hot and the usual dry conditions ensure that the grapes ripen fully. Vines are ploughed; no weed killer is used. Pruning is short to regulate the vine's growth and its yields.

Vinification

The grapes are picked at night in two passes. The first harvest is done at a relatively early stage in maturity, to keep freshness in the wine. Then 15 days later a second harvest is done, to get good concentration and varietal aromas. Grapes are destemmed and then macerated at 5°C for 6 hours. Fermentation is temperature-controlled at 17 ° C. The lees are added during tapping before fermentation to improve the mouth structure. No malolactic fermentation.
