The French call it rosé, in Italy it’s called Rosato. The “pink season” of wines kicks off this weekend with the Memorial Day holiday as family & friends gather in anticipation of summer. This season’s trend is all about “drink pink”.
Villa Graziella Toscano IGT Rosato is not your typical pink wine. Medium-bodied and refreshingly dry, it is a perfect rosé to celebrate the holiday & the grilling season with barbecued favorites.
Balanced & sturdy, our 2016 Rosato is made from organically farmed Sangiovese Piccolo grapes enhanced with Montepulciano grapes from Italy. Certified organic, our vineyard is free of chemical insecticides or synthetic fertilizers. Instead, biodiversity is used by growing crops in & around the grape vines to attract beneficial insects. Free of chemical residue while regulating the soil for a wine that is clean & delicious.
Pink wines don’t all herald from the same region or grapes. Villa Graziella’s authentic Sangiovese rose is crafted using the Salsasso method. Our talented wine maker, Luca Nesi removes juice from the fermenter. This minimizes skin contact to soften the tannins while offering a beautiful deep strawberry shade with a firm, pleasant taste
So, "Let us celebrate the occasion with wine & sweet words." — Plautus
