Notes from the Winemaker:

Stunningly balanced, this is an extremely appetent wine! Ideal as an aperitif with toast and crushed olives, or with wok-fried vegetables and garlic mayonnaise, grilled fish, lamb tajine, finely roasted guinea-fowl with rosemary...

Eye: A crystalline salmon colour with superb amethyst tints. Fine separate legs run slowly down the glass.

Nose: Expressive and particularly tonic, the wine immediately gives off notes of raspberry, cherry and freshly picked strawberries - followed by exotic aromas such as pineapple and mango.

Palate: A direct and considerable freshness - the density and richness of the fruit mingle with the superb acid vitality giving a wine with a frisson and a magnificent persistency.

Vinification:
A rosé bled from the vat. The grapes are harvested by hand and kept whole. After a natural settling of the juice for 24 hours, the alcoholic fermentation takes place at 18°C for 35 days. The malolactic fermentation is of course blocked and the wine rests for 1 month before bottling, preserving all the freshness and intensity of its aromas.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous (2017 Vintage):
"Limpid orange. Displays vibrant blood orange and redcurrant scents that are complemented by building floral and mineral notes. Nervy and focused on the nose, displaying fresh red fruit flavors that loosen up and take a sweeter turn on the back half. Finishes long and floral, with solid mineral cut and a late touch of bitter cherry." - Josh Raynolds (Aug 2018)

Wine Spectator Magazine (2017 Vintage):
"A lightly hued rosé, with crisp acidity highlighting the mineral, melon and white strawberry flavors alongside hints of nectarine and floral on the finish. Drink now. 12,440 cases imported." – GS (Jun 15, 2018)
