Only the best rosé wines can relinquish their packaging and fully express their territoriality. Although its small production, this Rosé captures Collestefano in a bottle: raspberry juice colour at the sight and freshly reminiscent of red berries at the nose. Its winy mouth-feel is mellow, crisp like a white wine, with pure closing notes of geranium, red apple, aniseed.
That’s an incredibly easy-drinking wine.
