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.
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):
We will be glad to answer your questions
