Le Caravage

its power at the moment takes you to the unforeseen...

A brilliant red color with copper hints, this rosé of saignée is a blend which both marvel sight and palate. A sensual and silky body, an aromatic palette with a nose swinging on red fruits such as blackcurrant and grenade to harmonize with soft species variations of anise and cumin. This wine is like a Caravage painting, its direct language, its power at the moment takes you to the unforeseen.

Le Caravage
Italian painter from Baroque gold age, at that time he was banned regarding its scandalous life. True genius, he worked with a remarquable velocity, directly on canvas without any sketches of its persons.
