With the grand success of Italy’s elegant reds and crisp whites, it goes without saying that we also create exceptional Rosè!
While it is a newcomer to many Italian regions, some have been producing it for ages. In Tuscany, the traditional Vin Ruspo was a rosè of the Carmignano wine enjoyed by peasant families. In the days of sharecropping, farmers would take a bit of the red wine off the top while it was ageing. The aged red wine would go to noble families and a light Rosè would be enjoyed by the family.
Most of the Rosati wines of Italy are made through light pressing, or “salasso” bleeding off the top of the barrel.
With their structured body, they are excellent both as an aperitivo or paired with a full dinner.
