Notes and food pair

A limited production for this rosé Tuscan inspired by Provence rosé. The assembly of Sangiovese with a small part of Teroldego gives the wine a bright pink color with soft coral reflections. Intriguing is the bouquet with notes of rose, wild strawberry and pomegranate. The taste is fresh and mineral. Impeccable taste-smell of small red berries which now return with an attractive long and persistent sour note. Passe-partout wine able to combine the diversity of the banquet.
