Alìe, or “Halia”, is a figure from Greek mythology, a sea nymph and a symbol of sensuality and beauty. Alìe, an elegant rosé with a pale pink hue and subtle ruby highlights, is a stylish, beautifully balanced blend of Syrah and Vermentino, varieties that express their finest qualities when grown near the sea. Scents of white flowers, wild strawberries and citrus peel combine with a hint of earthy minerality, typical of this growing area. With its delicate structure and lengthy, complex finish, Alìe is both an enchanting aperitif wine, as well as a delicious accompaniment to a meal shared with close friends and family.
Alìe 2018 stands out for its extreme sensuality. Its pale pink colour with peach nuances immediately expresses its intriguing personality. The sharp and unmistakable bouquet floods the senses with intoxicating Mediterranean aromas that meld with the fragrances of fresh and ripe fruit. September peach bursts forth followed by floral notes with subtle scents of rose. The result is an extremely mellow, fine and elegant nose. In the mouth, the fruity notes return, with the addition of captivating touches of citrus such as pink grapefruit. Little by little, a tangy undertone elegantly makes its entrance into this whirlwind of flavour sensations. Alìe 2018 is full, silky and deep, with an after-taste that explodes in a succession of fresh and persistent aromas.

Partners beautifully with smoked fish, particularly salmon, as well as with prosciutto, lighter meats, poultry, and fish. It is particularly recommended with well-spiced dishes and Asian cuisine.
