Aromas & Flavors
With aromas and flavors of fresh-picked strawberries, Maraschino cherries, raspberries, orange blossoms, cranberries, pomegranate and a touch of blood orange on the finish. Refreshing and lively, the Dry Sangiovese Rosé offers finesse balanced by mouthwatering acidity and an elegant finish.
Served chilled, this wine’s light, fruit characteristics make it a natural choice for pairing with fresh seafood like salmon, crab or shrimp, and game meats like duck, Cornish hens, lamb or turkey. Try with Moroccan couscous, Salade Nicoise, melon and prosciutto, or chicken. Cheeses such as fresh chèvre, goat, brie, Roquefort, fromage blanc or Mt. Tam Triple Cream are also delicious.
How It's Made
The grapes for this Rosé are harvested in the early morning hours when it’s cool, then transported to the winery where they are gently destemmed, crushed and cold soaked on the skins for two hours before pressing — just long enough to pick up the wine’s lovely pink and salmon hues and extract flavors from the skins. The grapes are then pressed to tanks and settled for 24 hours. The clean juice is racked and tank fermented, followed by blending and bottling in December.
The winter of 2018—2019 brought above average rainfall to the Russian River; with the bulk of the rain falling January through May. Spring temperatures were cooler, but began to warm in August through October. Weather at harvest was ideal. The end of August saw a bit of a heat wave, but the month of September was perfect for ripening.
