Light and crisp with delicate fruit flavors
Hints of dried rose petals, white nectarine, and crushed granite rock perfume this smooth Rosé of Primitivo. Light-bodied, subdued acidity, with soft undertones of almond, honey, and minerality.
The 2021 vintage is characterized as one of the best vintages in recent history. Drought conditions produced lower yields and smaller berry sizes, resulting in a moderate growing season which allowed for ideal flavor development. This Rosé is produced by hand-harvesting the grapes and placing them whole-cluster into the press. The grapes are pressed at lower pressures, resulting in lower juice yields and a more delicate juice extraction, hence the lighter color and texture of the wine. The juice is fermented cold in stainless steel tanks for a prolonged fermentation, and then racked into neutral oak barrels for two months of aging before bottling.
