2016 Rosato IGT Toscana
Piazza Del Castello
Nestled in the picturesque hills of Tuscany is the medieval town of Radda where an 11th century castle still proudly stands. Just beneath the castle's tower is a quaint square called Piazza Del Castello. The grapes grown in the sun-drenched hillside vineyards complete this charming setting. It is here where a rich Italian wine, Piazza Del Castello is conceived. This elegant wine is meant to be shared with family and friends, and was created a complement an Italian style meal.
VINIFICATION: The must is left on the skins for about 4-6 hours at controlled temperature to give the wind the characteristic pale rosé color. After soft-pressing the must is left to ferment at a temperature between 12-14°C and steel vats. The wine is then stored at 17-18°C in special stainless-steel tanks until bottling.
REGION: IGT Toscana - provinces of Siena, Florence, Pisa, Pistoia
TASTING NOTES: The delicate light rosé color is as elegant as the wine. Expect notes of red berries and a slight hint of tropical fruits. Dry, plush and well-balanced on your palate with good acidity and a lingering finish.
SUGGESTIONS: This Sangiovese Rosato pairs best with light salads, light pasta and prosciutto & roasted red pepper flatbreads, especially with seafood raw or likely cooked shellfish and goat cheeses.
A perfect summer sipper.
