It has evolved over the past few decades and now markets its products in over 50 countries. Casa Girelli possesses a wide portfolio of wines, including many quality products from different regions of Italy.
A very delicate pale pink colour, on the nose there are notes of redcurrant and other summer fruits along with a citrus edge. The palate is crisp, delicate and refreshing with a subtle strawberry note coming through on the finish.
Perfectly paired with salad of hot smoked salmon, watercress and new potatoes.
After de-stemming the grapes are very gently soft pressed and cooled. Cold maceration is initiated for 6-8 hours to allow the extraction of the colour from the skins (the characteristic "coppery colour").
