Winemaking

After the stems are removed, the grapes are left to macerate for one day and then pressed. In this way, we succeed in only partially imparting the coloring, which is contained in the skins, to the must, and the wine thereby obtains its fine rosé tone. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out with pure strains of yeast at a controlled temperature of 20 – 22 °C (68 -72 °F) in stainless steel tanks.

Appearance

Pink to light ruby red.

Food Pairing

Hearty appetizers, cured meats, and white meats.
