Boca NO, Italy (Piedmont)
Colline Novaresi (DOC)
48% Nebbiolo, 47% Vespolina, 5% Uva Rara
The Fenrose is a very special rosé. Sourced from a single plot of old vines in the Val Grande National Park and named after the regional section of this park, Monte Fenera. A dry wine with a delicate color, the Vespolina expresses elegant floral notes with mandarin, strawberry, and stone fruits. The palate is lush and textured. The finish is fresh with minerality and a white pepper spice.
