Translucent pale salmon pink in colour. Floral top notes of crushed rose petals meld into blood orange, stone fruits, wet slate and faint spice notes. Delicious peach, citrus and blood orange flavours have a slippery feel across the palate and finish with some tang. Stony, saline like back drop with a lick of spice prevalent on the long energetic and intensely flavoured aftertaste.

Other Reviews....
The 2019 Nervi Il Rosato is spicy and remarkably fresh, mixing ripe melon and apple notes with hints of almond paste and savory herbs, which lends a seductive yet savory edge. It’s soothing upon entry with a twang of zesty acids and salty minerals, with more of a red fruit and almost-licorice quality, as a note of rosy florals slowly fades. This 100% Nebbiolo Rosato from northern Piedmont is impossible to resist.
