|Transparent and very pretty pale rosy pink, frizzante but not fully sparkling; frothy bubbles quickly fall back in the glass. Delicate red berries and fresh herbs on the nose; crisp, prickly and fresh on the palate, subtle fruit shaped by good acidity. There may be a distant hint of fresh-fruit sweetness, but with the tart acidity and a pleasant, very slight bitter note in the finish, it comes across as dry. Lightweight 10.5% alcohol invites quaffing.
Spring's on the way, and this one will be a real treat for alfresco sipping or pairing with dinner salads and veggie dishes. It was very good with a simple meatless pasta dish, inguine con salsa di spinacci, long pasta with a thick spinach puree.
