Il Sangiosé

IGT TOSCANA ROSATO

 

A fresh rosé made from selected early-harvested, hand-picked Sangiovese grapes with optimal sugar and polyphenol content that allow for obtaining a fresh, harmonious wine with a moderate percentage of alcohol.

 

Grape variety: Chardonnay and Viognier
Soil: sandy (90%), very light colour, shallow.
Vine density: 5,000 plants per hectare
Training system: spurred cordon trained 80 cm from ground.
Yield per hectare: 65 quintals

 

Wine making method

The Sangiovese grapes are harvested by hand at the end of August or beginning of September, when the sugar content can reach the right levels of sugar and total acidity (11.5% potential alcohol and total acidity is higher than 7 mg/l tartaric acid). The grapes are de-stemmed and selected on a vibrating belt, then macerated in a stainless steel tank until the colour reaches the desired intensity and nuance. At this point, the wine is racked and fermentation at 18°C begins. At the end of fermentation, the coarser lees are removed, and ageing on the finer lees begins with daily agitation until January. The wine is filtered, without clarification, before bottling in February.
Bottles produced: 10,000 per year.

 

Tasting notes

A soft, powder-pink colour with coppery highlights. Floral with apricot notes on the nose, and a pronounced minerality and freshness in the mouth.

 

FOOD PAIRINGS

It is excellent with all kinds of appetizers, as well as with first courses and fish soup, Tuscan soup and all vegetable dishes. Its low alcohol content also makes it an ideal accompaniment to quick snacks.
