A lively ros fizz with delicate aromas of red berries and a palate of lush, summer fruits.
Produced from selected Pinot Grigio grapes grown on hillside vineyards in northern Italy. The grapes were hand harvested during the first 2 weeks of September
In the Winery
Harvesting time is established by means of tests which measure the degree of ripeness of the bunches. After an accurate selection carried out in the vineyard, the grapes are destalked, crushed and the must including the skins is immediately cooled to around + 8 C. Before pressing, 12 hours cold (+ 8 C) maceration is carried out in total absence of air in order to encourage extraction of the aromas from the skins. It is precisely during this stage of the winemaking process that the rose colour also occurs. Once maceration has been completed, the crushed grape mass is softly pressed using bladder presses and the must fermented in stainless steel at a temperature of around 18C. There follows a period of refinement in stainless steel before second fermentation takes place which lasts for approximately 2 weeks, followed by 8 weeks of ageing on the lees with daily stirring and then a further 2 weeks in bottle, before release
A Fantastic aperitif. Also goes well with light salads, pasta, rice or summer pudding with cream
