In the glass, it is crystal-clear, with a moderately intense cherry pink color, of good consistency.
On the olfactory examination it offers a wide and varied range of perfumes. Floral and fruity notes intertwine in a sinuous way, giving hints of violets, red roses as well as small red berries. Mineral closure with nuances of aromatic herbs from the Mediterranean maquis.
The sip is fresh, precise, perfectly balanced, with a finish of great flavor.
A particular rosé wine, that of Marisa Cuomo, with an important taste, for a demanding and attentive taster.
