SPARKLING EXTRA DRY ROSÈ
Akènta Rosé combines the excellence of Akènta with the charm and taste of a unique vine: the Cagnulari, grown on the sandstones of the countryside surrounding Alghero, from which the locality S’Arenosu takes its name, where its production is concentrated and where this vine is exalted. Akènta Rosé comes from a careful selection of bunches and is the first sparkling wine in the world produced from Cagnulari grapes. Delicate and incisive, it has a smooth and extremely pleasant drink.
