The Birbet should be drunk young within two years to appreciate his potentiality. At sight it is rich of very fine froth and presents a red-ruby colour with garnet reflections; at the olfaction it has an intensely perfume of fruits, with a typical and unmistakable bouquet; at the taste is sweet, delicate, well balanced by the acid fraction that gives back a pleasant wine.
