Winemaker's notes:

Violetta 2018 has a bright, pale salmon colour. On the nose there is a gentle, pretty nose of fresh red berry fruits, especially raspberries, and grapefruits displaying its youth in vivacity. Dry on the palate with medium acidity levels and medium body with a good intensity of fruit and good aftertaste. Although it is a rather easy-going rosé, Violetta does not want to be an upfront fruity wine, but rather a rose with a bit more taste on the palate. It gives just that.

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 2019-2020 but will bring pleasure for 2-3 more years.
