Shelf Taker

Intense raspberry-color rosé, 100% Merlot, silky and very aromatic. 

Wine Description

Elaborated by the traditional method of red-grapes bleeding after cold maceration for 12 hours. 

The traditional free running method fully respects the quality of the fruit which expresses in all its intensity in this wine. 

Following the clarification, the wine ferments at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. 

Tasting Notes

Raspberry pink, with medium deep color intensity. 

The nose is dominated by an explosion of red berry fruit (red currants, raspberries, and wild strawberries) and hints of sweets. 

Round and silky on the palate, with red berry fruits leading to a fresh intense finish.
