Winemaker's notes:

Violetta 2019 displays a medium deep salmon colour. Medium intense on the nose with youthful bright cherry, raspberry and grapefruit combined with some fresh apples and lemons at the back. In a word, loads of playful freshness in the bottle. Dry on the palate, medium bodied, with moderate acidities. Good fruit persistence and character similar to what is found on the nose but adding some extra layers on the palate. Being in between a cheerful rose and a straightforward wine, Violetta may be enjoyed for both occasional pleasure but also in a serious wine and food pairing.

Combining with food:

Violetta is an all-rounder that can be well served as an aperitif but will give lots of pleasure all the way through the meal. It will even work as a steward with most of the main dishes. Great summer wine.

Aging potential:

This is best to be drunk during 2020-2021 but will bring pleasure even in 2-3 years from now (April 2020).
