2015 Il Borro Bolle di Borro 750ml

The uniqueness of Bolle di Borro, is that it rests on its yeast for over 60 months. With all of the elegance of Sangiovese, the perlage of Bolle is fine and persistent. The aromatics evoke fresh bread crust and hints of the crisp freshness of Sangiovese. In the mouth it has a creamy texture, silky, with a juicy, tanginess typical of Sangiovese. Enjoy as an aperitif or throughout a meal, with refined and structured fish and meat dishes.

A truly special sparkling rosé wine to begin any holiday celebration!
