Hand-picked Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes evolve in a Franciacorta Rosé D.O.C.G. an elegant wine with faint and clear colour, scents of red fruits and a full and persistent taste, as well as with a fine fizz.
Definitely a perfect choice for any sort of main course, but distinctively superb with red and white meat dishes.
