Vino Rosato 2021
Viticulture and Harvest
The 2021 Vino Rosato is our classic rosé, made from the first run juice from our Sangiovese. The vines were fruit thinned prior to versaison (colour development) so as to increase the intensity of fruit flavour. The fruit was machine harvested in early February.
The fruit was crushed and pressed, with the free run and pressings components kept separate. The juice was fermented in stainless steel with an aromatic yeast at a very low temperature (10 degrees) to preserve the ferment characters.
Reflecting its origin, this rosé is light and fresh, with a dry finish, delivering lifted flavours of spicy cherry. The wine is a refreshing savour companion for charcuiteri or for hard cheeses such as grana padana and parmagiana.
For my taste, the colder, the better, on a hot day!
