The Five Roses Anniversario was created for the first time with the vintage ’93, in the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Five Roses.
Nice and brilliant cherry-red colour, heady scent of blackberry, red cur-rant and rose. To the palate it is rich in fresh acidity, great structure and a fruity and persistent finish. Suggested with “risotto”, fish and white meat. Great also with sushi and as aperitif.
