On the nose this wine has ripe, red berries with notes of grapefruit, orange peel and mint. On the palate the wine is full and crisp, with balanced fruit, strong minerality and great length. This is an impressive rosé that has the finesse and elegance of a Provençal style rosé combined with the structure of an Italian Red.

Sangiovese

Sangiovese is Italy’s most planted grape varietal and can taste quite different throughout, depending on the region it is grown in. It is the key grape variety of Tuscany’s distinguished Chianti and Montalcino regions. Sangiovese is generally higher in acidity with hints of local earth and herbs including roasted tomato, balsamic and oregano making this wine a great match for you guessed it: tomato sauce. It is sure to stand up beautifully with your home-cooked Italian meal.  AKA “Prugnolo Gentile” in the Montepulciano region within Italy.

Tuscany, Italy

Tuscany, within Central Italy, lies on the western side of the country. Tuscany is famous for its rolling hills, the popular region of Chianti and the black grape variety, Sangiovese. Sangiovese wines here usually produce high levels of acidity and tannin with aromas of red cherry, plum, and died herbs. Sangiovese does so well throughout Tuscany as it needs a warm climate to ripen fully. Designated regions to keep an eye out for are Chianti DOCG, Chianti Classico DOCG, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG. Additionally, Bolgheri DOC, for bold reds from the coast of Central Italy.

Giorgio Rivetti, the man who never sleeps, is at it again! His quest to make great wine has taken him from Piedmont to Tuscany, into the world of sparkling wines and aperitivos, and ROSATO.

The Il Rose is a blend of equal parts Sangiovese and Prugnolo Gentile. This rosé is made from organically-grown grapes sourced from 20-year-old vines grown in sandy soils with ocean sediments. The vineyards sit on south facing hills just outside of Pisa at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level. 

Winemaking: This wine is allowed 1-hour contact with the skins to get its bright pink hue. It also ages on the lees for three months in stainless steel tanks before bottling which rounds out the mouthfeel.
