Tasting notes

Colour

Medium intensity ruby red verging on light garnet, deep pink.

Scents

Musky aroma, very delicate, but intense and fragrant.

Taste

Sweet and soft flavour. The fine and persistent perlage exalts the heady old rose notes.

Food matches 

Right when paired with creams and desserts in general; as well as with dark chocolate in contrast with its softness. It is recommended for the preparation of fruit cocktails
