Grottaia Rosato

GROTTAIA ROSATO 2019

I.G.T. TOSCANA ROSATO

The wine appears a shimmering peony pink. The bouquet is redolent of wild strawberry enriched with hints of lychee and raspberry, underscoring its tangy, fresh aromatics, all of which return on a crisp, well-balanced palate. The near-endless finish is velvet smooth.

Grottaia Rosato is a delicious partner to fish or vegetable antipasti, and first courses of fish, seafood, and shellfish.

BLEND

Syrah 70%, Merlot 30%

WEATHER

The 2019 growing season was characterised by markedly variable weather. A cold spring delayed budbreak, but even temperatures, intense sunlight, and well-distributed rainfall in the summer favoured even, balanced ripening of the fruit. The harvest was the latest in recent years.

VINIFICATION

The two grape varieties were harvested and vinified separately. After de-stemming, the berries underwent a brief whole-berry cryomaceration of about 6-8 hours, to encourage maximum extraction of aromatic precursors, and they were then gently pressed. The must then went to stainless steel tanks for a controlled-temperature (16oC) fermentation of about two weeks, after which the new wine matured sur lie for three months and was bottled in the spring.
