Its delicate pink color leads you in to floral fragrances of dog rose and fruity notes of orange and fraises des bois, along with hints of lychee and ginger, in a scent profile that is at once elegant and complex. These persuasive aromas are then echoed on the palate in a fresh, succulent flavour, made vibrant by a tanginess that gives added dynamism to its almost crunchy nuances of wild berries and sweet spices.
Excellent as an aperitif, it also goes well with many traditional Italian hors d’oeuvres and appetizers, based on cold cuts or fish. Its colour makes it an ideal accompaniment for recipes with pink ingredients, such as shrimps or salmon, and it is delicious with many of the spicy dishes of oriental cuisine.
