Frank Cornelissen Terre Siciliane Rosato Susucaru 2021
From the winery:
Our rosé is produced with the same phylosophy and vinification techniques as all our other wines: skincontact for texture and territorial identity, malolactic fermentation fully finished for density, fluidity and stability. Not only a refreshing summer wine from a blend of Malvasia, Moscadella, Insolia and Nerello Mascalese, as this is a “rosé” which can also be regarded as a light red, like a “Jura” wine, pairing well with a wide variety of dishes.
