Terre Cerase

Indicazione Geografica Protetta /// Rosè
Terre Cerase

Appearing a shimmering cherry, the bouquet, too, privileges fragrant morello cherry, flanked by black and red wild berryfruit, plus delicate hints of spice and blossoms. In the mouth, it is smooth and full-bodied, making this a fine aperitif wine, but ideal as well with sauced fish, poultry, and veal. Outstanding paired with Campania mozzarella di bufala and with pizza napoletana.
