Tadzio: bright, berrylike but still retains its minerality

versatile and lively – like Villa Caviciana

IGT Lazio Rosato

The rosé Tadzio is pressed from Aleatico grapes. Its bright colour, between buckthorn and coral, is a joy to be seen on any summer deck. This vibrant rosé has an exceptional amount of flavour and is a good choice for red wine drinkers too, who like to enjoy a chilled wine in the summer.
