fresh fruity rosè wine, intense nose, elegant body, refreshing aftertaste
Its taste on the palate is decidedly fruity with a bright and zesty finish. It is an all-meal sparkling wine that is ideal with the most sophisticated cusine.
Harmonious, sapid and aromatic fragrance. It is excellent as an aperitif, goes well with starters and particularly with delicately flavoured dishes, most of all fish based ones.
Lagrein, aged in oaken barrels, is a strong and elegant wine with an unmistakable bitter berry scent and a likeable flavour of vanilla and violets.
The high quality of the grapes and aging in wooden casks (a small amount of it is aged in barrique) make this a rich and fruity red wine to be enjoyed at leisure.
