Mario Rosé

This sparkling rose has a dull coral appearance, due to a short skin contact. Characteristic dark berries are spotted on the nose. Taste is elegant, fruity and sparks with freshness. A good representation of what Pinot Noir can yield in the terroir of Bizeljsko. Can be stocked for up to 5 years.
