Grapes were sourced from the Quercia vineyard at Il Cascinone, which produces some of the freshest, most fragrant Pinot Noir on the estate. Pinot Noir was harvested at the start of September, and Barbera in the 3rd week of September. The grapes were cool-fermented separately at 16ºC. After around 5 months on lees the parcels were blended a month before bottling.
Pretty pale pink in colour. Fresh and lifted on the nose with citrus, raspberry and gently floral notes. The palate balances tangy redcurrant fruit with crisp, lemony acidity leading to a clean dry finish. A delicious style of pale, food friendly rosé .
A good match with basil and goats cheese risotto, or pasta with a seafood sauce and cherry tomatoes.
