The Rosé

 

This wine comes from the blend of Cabernet, Malbec and Gamay grape varieties and offers a beautiful pink color with a tone of cherry red.

The smell is very expressive and complex. The aromas evoke red berries with discreet notes of cranberries.

The taste, in the continuity of the smell presents a nice balance between roundness and freshness that ends with a tonic and acidulated finish.
