    Description

    The Prelibato Rosé White Dressing is based on must from Modenese Trebbiano and Ancellotta grapes, originating from the vineyards of the Malpighi family, and combined with rose essence taken from the plants at the Malpighi family farm “Tenuta del Cigno”. Prelibato Rosé represents an innovative cooking concept, concerning fish in particular, through an original, refined and high-quality dressing. It is a completely natural product.

    This white dressing has a clear appearance, a soft rose colour, a fresh and fruity fragrance, a well-balanced rose infused flavour, and a density rating of 1.22.

    Pairing Suggestion

    It should be used raw on fish dishes, combined with fresh or grilled vegetables, crustaceans, shellfish and caviar or with fresh and canned fruit. Due to its delicate nature, we recommend it be tasted using plastic or white porcelain teaspoons to avoid altering its flavour.
