FIRST ROSE’ WINE EVER BOTTLED IN ITALY
Obtained mainly from Negroamaro grapes, it conquests at first sight with the characteristic crystalline cherry-red colour and enchants with fruity scents of cherry and strawberry. In the mouth it is fresh, smooth and nicely persistent. Suggested with “risotto”, boiled meat and dishes based on sea-food and white meat. Very good with “frisa salentina”.
