a beautiful deep pink wine with orange reflexes (onion peel). In the glass it is consistent but sliding, with regular bows and thin tears.
on the nose it is immediately interesting, with fragrances that resemble rose petals, violet, jasmine. A fine balsamic and light plum flavor closes the aromatic department. Little perceptible alcohol.
In the mouth it is pleasant, fresh, slightly sapid, balanced, with fine tannins in line with the structure of the wine. A good acidity with right minerality gives this wine a satisfying and undemanding drinkability.
