Puro rosé: sparkling
Puro, it fills the room with a feeling of mysterious anticipation while opening it.
Brilliant, cherry pink in colour, with a slight tinge of copper. It forms long chains of tiny bubbles that bloom elegantly at the top.
Its intense bouquet evokes scents of orange peel, ripe peach, raspberry, currant, red rose, roasted almonds, notes of wild mint, as well as butter and rye bread crust.
Brut Nature with perceivable softness. Alcohol is nicely incorporated and aligns well with an intense refreshing feeling and mineral salinity of the wine. The latter is felt through a pleasant bitterness.
It is a wine of intense perceptions, with emphasized elegance, lasting persistency and a full body. A harmonious wine that enchants in its complexity and liveliness, which will only develop over ages.
