NOTES A unique shade of pink, as if it were a cloud of powder flown into the glass, characterizes Franciacorta Rosé 1701. No compromise in the choice of vinifying the Pinot Noir in purity on the skins, a choice that gives an aromatic scent with surprising hints of cinchona and a rare gustatory balance.
