Brilliant, inviting light raspberry-rosé, pale violet lilac blossoms at mother´s day, gentian. Like a blue bouquet of flowers presented with empathic compliments. Juicy peach and bananas al dente, some raspberries and a touch of fresh mint. Semi-sweet, backed by an animating acidity. Elegant creamy texture with vibrating fruit sweetness. The tiny, cheeky rosé cobolds keep dancing on the palate until the bottle is empty. Vivacious style and serious volume combine to an enchanting finesse in the finish. Semi-sweet can be so sexy!
