Eros is the god of Love. Tradition suggests that Eros was the son of Ares and Aphrodite. He is depicted as a child, often with wings, who delights in causing havoc in lovers’ hearts, sometimes inflaming them and sometimes wounding them. This rosé wine produced from Nebbiolo grapes has been dedicated to Eros. During the fermentation process, the must has only brief contact with the skins, and this allows the extraction of the best fruit fragrances that contribute to the production of this tempting wine that is excellent as an aperitif.
