The various grape varieties are harvested separately when each of them is just at the right ripeness level. The winemaking process is managed to respect the specific characteristics of the grape varieties and the qualities of the soil. The grapes are harvested mechanically with a built in sorting system The grapes are de stemmed, cooled down to 8 C and transferred to the press to extract the rosé wine must. Particular attention is paid to the pressing to ensure that only the first, highest quality juice is kept The juice is then left to settle according to the precise aromatic profile that is being targeted. The fermentation lasts between 15 and over 30 days, depending on the degree of clarification and the temperature. Finally, after a light fining, the wine is bottled quite early to preserve the fresh, fruity character of the wines.
The robe shows a soft, pale, brilliant pink with bluish tints developing over time towards more orangey nuances.
The bouquet releases aromas of summer fruits, cassis and redcurrant Floral notes of rose along with hints of grapefruit complete the picture.
On the palate the impression is fresh and full, with great aromatic persistence and balance The finish is fresh, offering notes of candy.
