This is a special rosé, lush and intense, it is a wine to truly savour, a fleeting moment to treasure. It is just a few days a year when the grapes are perfect, making for a drink abundant in both fruit and spices, with that irresistible ‘Bella’ charm.
After almost ten practice harvests, the ripest cabernet bunches were selected and carefully de-seeded by hand. The grapes were finely pressed and then the wine was aged in oak barrels, just like the award-winner vintages of the winery.

An elegant light peach colour already indicates that this is not your regular rosé wine. The aroma is characterised by red berries and herbal aromas, with a touch of chalk that clearly hints at the terroir. On the palate you can taste red berries, especially cherries and rosehip, as well as some tantalising notes of gooseberry and kiwi fruit. Rich and intense, it has a lively, energetic acidity as the flavours swell and roll in your mouth, finishing in a long fruity aftertaste with a delicate touch of sweetness. Already an exquisite wine, but you will be rewarded for your patience if you can keep it for a bit longer.
Food Pairing Recommendation
It goes very well with white fish, salads and light pasta dishes. Serve it alongside fresh cheese like Feta or Halloumi for a mouth-watering experience.
Serving temperature: 12-14°C
