Birbet Vintage 2019

Tasting Notes

The wine has a pale garnet red colour, with purplish reflexes.

Its aroma is delicate, soft and aromatic with hints of ripe fruits, such as apples and plums, together with fresh flowers, roses and violets.

Sweet, delicate at the palate, with fine and persistent bubbles.

Pleasant with cakes, perfect with fruit, in particular strawberries and the peaches of Canale.
