The grapes, without being de-stemmed, undergo a soft pressing. Static decantation then follows, allowing the extraction of the clear must. Afterward, selected yeasts are used to allow the alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature. Once the fermentation is finished, the wine ages on fine lees and is left to rest in stainless steel tanks before being bottled.
It has vivid pink colour. The aroma is slightly fruity with clear notes of blackcurrant and cherry. The taste is fresh, harmonious, and nicely persistent.
Ideal with fish soups, baked vegetables, cereals, and legumes. Excellent for a pre-dinner.
