Pale rose gold colour. Light creamy cherry notes with almost a touch of “creaming soda.” Still carries Sangiovese herbal lilt and a toasted nut note.  The easy palate brings more cherries and soft/crunchy red fruits. Food friendly acidity that would dig a lunchtime antipasto platter with plenty of salumi. Buono!

RRP: $16

Alc: 13.5%
