TM Rosé 2016
A mild winter with low rainfall led to a slightly precocious budding. It was a good spring and even if there was little rain allowed a regular and very healthy growth. A textbook mid-July veraison was accompanied by a beautiful and breezy summer.
With its classic pale onion-skin colour, presents lovely notes of apricot, medlar fruit, pear, winter cherry and pink grapefruit. Delicate and fresh, with a gentle structure that makes it perfect both for “aperitivo” and to accompany fish and seafood dishes.
