Rosa is a rose’ sweet wine with a light fizz, made by using 100% Sangiovese grapes grown at our Fattoria di Basciano. It was our idea of Reviving the old Tuscan tradition of the “Vin Bianco Dolce”, a sweet and light wine made of white grapes, whose secondary fermentation happened in the bottle. This wine was intended for a familiar use only, to celebrate the Christmas festive season.
It is to be served at 13-14° C: when slightly cool, it gives its best aromas and is the perfect choice for creamy pastry, spoon desserts, cakes and ice Cream. It matches perfectly with sweet or bitter chocolate.
100% Sangiovese grapes.
The grape must has only a brief contact with the grape skins at controlled temperature, never above 10° C. We let the fermentation take place at 17° C, then we block the process when the alcohol content is 7% and the sugar content is 10% by cooling down the wine and by filtering it right after.
Pale salmon-pink colour. Intense and rich nose, with notes of little red berries, banana, pineapple and flower scents. In the mouth it is sweet and aromatic, with a light fizz and well balanced by a lively acidity.
