Life at Castello di Montegiove · Wine making

ro.sa.to.

 

We have been bottling our new ro.sa.to. 2016, it is one of the first signs that spring is on the way to Castello di Montegiove. The bottles with the pretty, bright pink wine looks so inviting and makes me look forward to summer lunches and evening aperitifs with friends and family at the terrace.

It is produced from Sangiovese, Canaiolo Nero and Sagrantino grapes using the classical “saignée” method. The “saignée” process involves bleeding off a portion of wine after only a short period of time in contact with the grape skins. The colour of the rosé wine is derived from pigments only found in the skins of coloured grapes; the resulting colour of the juice from a short contact with the skins will have light or bright pink hue.

Cin Cin!
