FOSSEDAL ROSATO IGT
The ‘one night wine’ rosé was born from black grapes of Merlot and Barbera undergoing a fermentation with a temporary contact with the skins (one night time), as an expression of the way our winery interprets it. Deep pink in color with purple shades, delicate and floral aroma, rich and persistent in tasting.
The healthy grapes are harvested by hand and put into 15kg boxes at the end of August with the correct balance between acids and sugar.
After a 24 hours cold maceration in cold store at 10 ° C aiming at transferring all the fragrant aromas from the skin to the flesh, we proceed to grape destemming, then the grapes are stored in stainless steel tanks favoring the contact of must with the skins for about 10 hours. Later on the must is separated from the skins and cleaning by static natural settling takes place. The controlled alcoholic fermentation starts at 16 ° C thanks to selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 16-18 ° C, in order to make the aroma more complex, intense and persistent.
Aging only in stainless steel tanks, the wine is bottled starting from the month of February.
Pink colour wine with coral hints. The nose consists in a harmonious combination of fresh and fragrant notes of berries and rose and balanced and inviting aromas of raspberry and strawberry. It is extremely delightful in its freshness and elegance thanks to a its tastefulness and mineral notes joined to a delicate robustness and harmony.

Thanks to its richness and variety, this wine is king, where salty and spicy reign.
