Name

Illusion - is the result of the research part of our work, both in the vineyard and in the winery. 

Also, during vinification, we use a number of innovative techniques, but “publish” only those that gave a good result.

This wine we called Illusion, because de facto, in all respects, you drink rosé wine, but it creates a complete illusion of red.

Our recommends

 

In addition to typical gastronomic combinations for red wine, “Illusion” can be drunk as an aperitif from a large cocktail glass, adding 5-6 ice cubes there (albeit with other wines, this is not worth repeating!).

And our answer to the Verona syringe-aperol, mojito or caipirinhas can become such a cocktail (our enologist-consultant has peeped over the recipe in Piedmont):
= 2 teaspoons of sugar
= 2 limes, cut in half, and then each half into 4 pieces;
= bottle of "Illusions"
Preparation: pour sugar into a large glass, dice the sliced ​​lime, lightly press down with a spoon or bartender, add 4-5 ice cubes and add a glass with cooled “Illusion”. And voila, your Kaipullusion cocktail is ready!
