MONTE DELLA ROSA
The name of this wine comes from vineyards surrounding the Sanctuary of the “Madonna della Rosa” from which we get the grapes to produce it. The clusters are picked into shallow boxes, then gently de-stemmed. The must is fermented in steel with ambient yeasts, then the wine is drawn off. A portion then matures in small oak barrels, while the rest is transferred to glass-lined cement vats, where it matures for 12-15 months. Only after this stage is the final blend assembled. It is especially recommended with first courses and second meat courses.
Color: Medium-dense ruby red.
Scent: The nose releases generous fragrances of cherry, blueberry, and other berries, appealingly complemented by typical Cabernet spiciness and smooth, toasty nuances from the cask-ageing.
Taste: Notable dynamism and a velvet-smooth, vanilla-edged mouthfeel.
