The maceration on the skins for three days provides this glorious pink color with tinges of orange; displays aromas of raspberry, red currant, cherry and citrus; on the palate – intense fruit flavors, fresh; it opens up providing an impression of plunging into a basket of freshly picked strawberries, Morello cherries and raspberries; beautifully rounded and long finish – it’s truly a gastronomic Champagne!
