VINTAGE

Vintners the valley over are raising a glass to the 2023 vintage as one of the best ever for both reds and whites. Winemakers believe that the abundance of rainfall and a lengthy growing season contributed to some truly incredible fruit being produced. Cheers and glasses clinking were heard earlier this season for the 2023 harvest, back when only a select few knew just how amazing it was going to be.

WINEMAKING

Strategy is key when beginning the process of creating our Aglianico Rosato. The first step in this well thought out process is planning a 2–3-week early harvest for these grapes. This very purposeful timing is what captures the vibrancy and liveliness that encapsulates our Rosato. We then move onto a gentle destemming and crushing of the berries. From here a meticulous and extended pressing cycle draws out the lovely juice that is the keystone of this wine. The fermentation that follows is a purposefully gradual journey, done at cool temperatures to ensure the wine's brilliant aromatics remain intact. By taking such a meticulous winemaking approach, our commitment to crafting an Aglianico Rosato that is the embodiment of brilliance and levity is realized.

TASTING NOTES

Be captivated by its austere and refreshingly dry profile. From the delicate aromas of nectarines, peaches, bubblegum, raspberries, and seashell to the vibrant acidity and explosive palate bursting with tart cherry and strawberry, each sip promises a delightful journey of flavor. And just when you think the experience has concluded, the lingering presence of noticeable tannins—a rare characteristic in Rosato wines—will surprise and delight your senses. Truly a unique and tasty Rosato!

PAIRINGS

This bright and vibrant Rosato pairs beautifully with seafood and spicy dishes.
