Sangiovese Rose

Sangiovese Rose Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: A pretty apricot, delicate salmon pink color! The nose is a fabulous strawberry, watermelon and cranberry combination. The flavors echo that of the aroma, plus a touch of apricot. This wine shows some sweetness, yet finishes off-dry as a result of the firm acidity. Our rose’ is a fantastic match when paired with cold summer sandwiches, smoked seafood appetizers or smoked ham. 100% Kestrel Sangiovese

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.
