Description:

THE VINE’S SELECTION

Focus on the indigenus varieties also through the research of ancient  biotypes, experimentation in the vineyard with the selection of clones and meticoulos matching of the soils, represent the peculiarities of our work as vinegrowers. The ”Inzolia Rosa” (pink inzolia) is a good example of this approach. An ancient biotype of Calabrese grown on these hills since ever, becomes the hearth or our rosé traditional method sparkling wines. The calcareous clay of the Munti areal, on the top of the hill facing North-West, permits an ideal ripening of these grapes, preserving its perfumes, minerality, acidic backbone, particularly suoted for the production of rosé sparking wines.

SENSORY PROFILE

A pink colour with salmon glints. The perlage is very fine and persistent. To the nose releases exotic red fruits with notes of lychee and strawberry. It’s creamy and sweet to the palate, it highlights the aromatic notes of fruit and pastry, enhancing a transverse complexity.
