A wine that excites! The almost dark, amber color announces that it is something completely different. Orange sparkling wine, the base wine of which was produced by eight months of maceration. Herbal notes and overripe fruits are noticed on the nose. Aromas unusual for sparkling wine. In the mouth, it tastes fresh, slightly spicy, with an intense taste of ripe apricots and figs. The finish is straightforward and rounded, but not too long. This sparkling wine is an ideal surprise for wine enthusiasts who would like to try something new and crazy. It goes great with food, especially combinations with slightly more pronounced flavors, such as fish broth. The aging potential says at least 15 years.
