Tasting Notes: The fresh, pure character of this wine makes it an extremely versatile wine to pair with food. Perfect to drink on its own, while cooking or with any food that is light and uncomplicated such as chicken, rice dishes, pasta and pizza.
"Fresh red berries, candied flowers and a hint of white pepper on the expressive nose. Juicy, appealingly sweet and light on its feet, offering raspberry and cherry flavors that show good focus and no rough edges. In a highly appealing, easy-to-drink style, yet not lacking in complexity. Closes long and smooth, with no obvious tannins and lingering red berry character. There's serious value here."
