Grape variety: Malvasia, Moscadella, Catarratto, Nerello Mascalese
Their rosé is produced with the same phylosophy and vinification techniques as all their other wines: skin contact for texture and territorial identity, malolactic fermentation fully finished for density, fluidity and stability. Not only a refreshing summer wine from a blend of Malvasia, Moscadella, Insolia and Nerello Mascalese, as this is a “rosé” which can also be regarded as a light red, like a “Jura” wine, pairing well with a wide variety of dishes.
