This is a highlight from Friuli in the “green & flinty style”.

The Cantina del Vermentino “Thaóra” Colli del Limbara Rosato shines bright strawberry red with copper reflections. (In earlier times it would have been spoken of a “strong clear pink”. But today hardly anyone can do anything with this outdated term. The bouquet is balanced, fruity and floral with notes of freshly harvested cherries, strawberries and pomegranates. Complemented by delicate and spicy accents. In the mouth, the “Thaóra” is exactly what you would like a good rosato to be: dry, crisp, juicy, fresh, with pleasant fruit acidity, tender, soft, slightly vinous, stimulating to drink. In the finale of medium length there are slightly bitter hints.

When strawberry season meets rosé season, then the Visconti Antica Casa Chiaretto Garda Classico DOC is coming! In light pink he lights up in the glass.

Soft, mild and balanced, delicately astringent, with stimulating fruit acidity and long finish.
