Quotes

In Vino Veritas : “… a myriad of iridescent bubbles with gooseberry and rhubarb aromas dazzle the eye, lighten the nostrils, in greedy omens tempting the mouth without restraint. Crispy, even crunchy, fruity, fresh and spicy, the sparkling fills the mouth. Spring roses and almond blossoms develop their graceful bouquet with a fruity flow. Strawberry, cherry and raspberry add to the flavors. In a tight web, nacreous pearls burst into an aromatic festival and strengthen liveliness with their cuddly scratches.”
