With a bright cherry color, Elba Rosato DOC has an immediate bouquet of wild strawberry and orange blossom, a generous sip gives a balance between sweetness and flavor with rich progression. It is fresh and full of character, as well as versitile in its pairings.
Elba Rosato DOC
Rocky, clay and sandy soil, originating from rock erosion and fluvial processes.
Vines trained using Guyot and spurred cordon systems.
Early to mid September
Manual in ventilated crates
The grapes, selected on the plant, are de-stemmed and pumped into the press where they are briefly macerated; following a soft pressing, the free-run must is decanted cold into steel tanks, before being fermented in a controlled temperature between 16 and 20°C. There is no malolactic fermentation.
The wine is refined “sur lies” in inox steel tanks until bottling.
Brilliant cherry pink with onion skin nuances, the bouquet is immediately articulated with hints of wild strawberry, lime blossom and orange; by rotating the wine in the glass, hints of raspberry and hawthorn emerge more and more clearly. Its entry to the palate is immediately broad and sweet to quickly become sapid and juicy. The taste is smooth and long, embellished with returns of black cherry and lime.
Elba Rosato DOC comes from a delicate pressing of sangiovese and aleatico grapes selected on the plant. The free-run must is separated and left to decant in steel tanks for fermentation at a controlled temperature and refinement sur lies until bottling.
Perfect with an aperitif and with seafood appertizers, Elba Rosato DOC goes very well with main courses of baked or grilled fish, white meat and tartare, as well as aged cheeses.
