‘ROSA’ TOSCANA ROSATO I.G.T.
2020 is considered a classic vintage. Spring was sunny and warmer than average, whereas June had several episodes of rain that restored the water supply. In July and August the temperatures were on average, with warm and sunny days. The first twenty days of September were characterized by hotter days than average and sunny days, then at the end of the month the temperatures lowered noticeably.
The wines of 2020 show intense colours, a nice aromatic expression and their structure is supported by a nice acidity
2019 is considered a very good vintage: the summer was warm and dry, with only two episodes of rain (one in July and one in August).
September temperatures remained within the average for the time of the year and we harvested the white grapes at the beginning of the month.
The wines of 2019 are very interesting and of very high quality. Upon tasting, the wines present intense colours, an excellent aromatic expression of the varietal and a very nice freshness.
Falstaff Trophy Rosè
|Falstaff Trophy Rosè||Antonio Galloni/Vinous|
Our rosé comes from the "Martiena" vineyard, which is located in front of the winery and whose grapes are therefore the first to reach the reception area during the harvest. The grapes destined for Rosa are harvested a couple of weeks earlier than those for Rosso di Montepulciano: when the veraison is complete and the acidity level is still high with a good sugar content.
The wine is characterised by a soft pink colour, its bouquet is rich in fresh aromas, especially flowers and fruit, red and soft. Moderate acidity, fresh fruit aromas such as cherry, strawberry, raspberry and orange blossom.
The soil, rich in sand and tuff, enhances the fruity taste of the wine, its pleasantness and freshness.
The Martiena vineyard: located very close to the winery, so that the grapes reach the reception area immediately at harvest time.
