Young, crispy, with an elegant fruit. Rosé di Rosa is by definition « the Milazzo’s semi sparkling». It shows the unmistakable hallmarks of our Charmat ‘corto - short’. The short second fermentation in our bulk tanks enhances the perfumes in the glass and the over all smoothiness.
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 examples of this approach. An ancient biotype of Calabrese grown on this hills since ever, becomes the hearth or our rosé wines. The calcareous clay of the Munti areal, on the top of the hill facing North-West, pemits an ideal ripening of these grapes, preserving its perfumes, minerality, acidic backbone, particularly suoted for the production of rosé wines.
It shows a beautiful pink colour with coppery highlights. Perfumes of ripe fruit, reminiscents of wild red fruits. To the palate is fragrant and full with good flavour and a nice length.
