Pink grapefruit, ripe cherries, mineral finish.

With its vibrant magenta pink hue and frothy top, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in for a sugar bomb of a sparkling wine. But appearances can be deceptive sometimes. With no added sugar (unlike most conventional sparkling wines) this sparkling pinot noir rosato tastes more like a freshly picked blackberry from a snow-covered hedge.

Brought up on the mountainous ridges of Trento in the north of Italy and tended to by Matteo Furlani - a fourth generation natural winemaker nicknamed 'The Fizz Wizz' - this is a sparkling wine of minerality and restrained fruit. And while it does indeed capture those icy winter mountain mornings in Trento with its super dry almost citrusy personality, it also whispers the warmth it trapped as grapes under a summer sun.
