‘Rosatum, or ‘Rose Wine’, was the name given by the Romans to a wine scented with attar of roses. The minute yields result in a delicately sweet wine characterised by a ripe aroma of roses and silky opulence. It is bright ruby in colour with a delicate bouquet of roses and red berry fruits; spicy on the palate, smooth and luscious with an opulent sweetness cut by fruity acidity.
