The sparkling wine has a claret pink color resulting from a brief maceration of the must with the skins before fermentation. The rosé base wine is therefore obtained in the “Italian” style by brief maceration of red grapes. The perlage is intense, creamy and elegant with fine, numerous and persistent bubbles. You can smell and intense aromas of red fruit (currant, blackberry and raspberry) which continue in a very wide, persistent and broad taste. Suitable for consumption throughout the meal. The combination enhances the local salami but also fish-based dishes. It is not suitable for pairing with desserts.
