Rosato Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: Our Rosato, a dry fermented, medium-bodied rosé of Sangiovese, has acquired an amazingly devout following. Made using traditional French methodology, the juice is spends 72 hours in contact with the red skins. The resulting brilliant magenta-hued wine is not meant for meek and not at all cloying. A perfect poolside companion that pairs well warm weather fare (think prosciutto wrapped melon or shrimp on the bbq). Drink now, and drink icy cold for earth-shattering enjoyment.

Varietal Definition
Sanguis Jovis, the Latin origin for the varietal name, literally means “blood of Jove.” Sangiovese is one of the oldest known varietals and it is likely that ancient Etruscan winemakers cultivated it, although the first literary reference to Sangiovese was in 1722. Sangiovese is probably indigenous to Tuscany, whose most famous wine is Chianti. Chianti is a blend that currently contains a minimum of 90% Sangiovese.Sangiovese thrives in hot dry climates. Because these climatic criteria generally enhance quantity, rather than quality, it takes careful cultivation and winemaking techniques to produce really excellent wine from this grape.
