Vineyard The grapes for this rose come from a specific site, named Scalabrone, within the Guado al Tasso estate. The vineyards lie at 45-60 metres above sea level, on rocky limestone soil. Cuttings were supplied by the on-site nursery.
Winery The grapes were destemmed and soft-crushed straight after the harvest, and then macerated at around 10 degrees C for four to six hours, depending on the grape variety. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at a temperature no higher than 16 degrees C. Following blending, the wine was kept at 10 degrees C to preserve fragrance until bottling around a month later.
Taste A distinguished rose with a fresh, fruity nose dominated by raspberry aromas; well-balanced and elegant on the palate with a long finish of raspberry and rose.
