Adding to cart… The item has been added

A wonderfully compact, finely chiselled way with Aleatico. Floral, but not obviously so, with fragrant notes of pink and red blossom, pink grapefruit and cherrystone fruit character on the palate, and a salty citrus finish. Maceration takes place on the skins for one night, followed by spontaneous fermentation with only native yeasts in small cement bins, without the use of chemicals or any additives other than a small amount of sulphur at bottling. The wine spends six months in a mixture of steel and cement barrels and a further two months in bottle. Highly recommended as an alternative for the night of the week when you can't quite justify opening that bottle of Le Coste Rosato...
