Cassiopea Bolgheri DOC Price € 15.50
Cassiopea is named after a constellation, which, depending on its orientation in the sky, can resemble either an 'M' for Marilisa Allegrini or a 'W' for her late brother Walter, with whom she embarked on the Poggio al Tesoro project before his passing. Made from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc , the final rosé shows both complexity of character and easy-drinking enjoyment.
Sensory features: Deep strawberry-pink in colour, Cassiopea exudes playful aromas of ripe strawberries, red cherries, and orange zest. On the palate, it is medium-bodied and crisp, with a supple mouthfeel and a long, flavourful finish.
Best served: Perfect as an aperitif, Cassiopea also pairs with tuna, rustic seafood stews, bruschetta and other tomato-based appetizers, and grilled chicken or pork .
