There are two different ways to make Rose out of red grapes: one is to make it as if the grapes were white by pressing them immediately after harvesting and fermenting the juice only; the other way is called saignee or “bleeding” the juice from the fermenters prior red wine fermentation. In 2021 our Rosato is a 100% “saignee” from both Sangiovese blocks. The juice was fermented cold and slow in stainless steel tank. Post fermentation, portion of the wine was aged briefly in neutral oak barrels and small stainless barrels. The flavor profile of our Rosato di Sangiovese is amazing –guava, peach, apricot and watermelon followed by touch of pomegranate and a hint of rose petals. The mouth feel is viscos with slight sweetness, bright acidity, juicy and refreshing. Enjoy this wine well chilled with or without food, it will be equally satisfying. Cheers.
