The idea of the Rosato came up following our summer holidays in the nearby French Riviera, where we had the opportunity to taste many Rosé de Provence, whose fresh and delicate style we very much appreciated. So, we decided to vinify a Piedmontese Rosé, inspired by the Provencal style but using our native Barbera and Nebbiolo grapes, which together can express characteristics of perfumes and freshness in a very pleasant combination.
Maceration takes place separately for few hours, followed by fermentation which lasts about 3 weeks in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 15 degrees. After aging in its own yeasts for about 3 months, the Rosato is ready to be bottled.
It is a fresh wine which is best served when young and it has great versatility when combined with food. Aroma of wild strawberries and hints of cherry; this wine features a soft and harmonious taste and a great freshness on the palate, due to the sapidity of the Nebbiolo tannin.
