Langhe Rosato DOC

GRAPE

Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, Barbera

WINEMAKING

The grapes are de-stemmed, crushed and sent to fermentation tanks, where a cold maceration occurs at a temperature of around 10° C for 24 hours. Upon the maceration, a soft pressing of the skins and a subsequent settling of the must is made, then the wine is kept cold for additional 24 hours. Therefore, the must is left to ferment at a maximum temperature of 18° C for 18-20 days. Then the wine is usually filtered in order to inhibit malolactic fermentation. It is bottled around February of the year after the harvest.

DESCRIPTION

The basic objective of our Langhe Rosato is to find a place for those grapes we cannot use for our red wines. For this reason, every year the blend and the grape varieties are different. The result is an interesting dry Rosato, far from “sugar-candied” characters, not extremely alcoholic, with good structure and length. Easy to pair with an aperitivo (charcuterie and cheeses), salmon, raw fish, mozzarella or burrata, cold pasta. We suggest to serve it at 14-15 ° celsius. Refreshing, easy, yet not simple.
