  • Tasting Notes

    • Its color is intense ruby in color with violet highlights. Its nose exhibits aromas of wildflowers from the lagoon with dark wild berries and a complex expression of dark chocolate, sweet spices, and herbs. The palate is fresh and firm with a voluptuous texture with notes of licorice and peppermint. Its finish is long, intense, and savory. Rosso Venissa has a long prospect ahead.
