Fantini Calalenta Rosé
100% Merlot. This “Provence style” rosé has a very pale pink blush color. Fresh and flinty aromas of strawberry, fresh-cut watermelon and rose petals on the nose with mineral notes on the palate. The wine has a refreshing acidity that’s in harmony with the fruit; good length.
“The goal of the winery is to produce wines of excellent value and quality that can be enjoyed by all wine aficionados.”
