Ancora Pinot Grigio Rosé – Produced from grapes grown in the Pavia region of northern Italy. The ripest grapes were selected from mature hillside vineyards and harvested in early September. The extra ripeness allows the dark-skinned Pinot Grigio grapes develop a pink tinge which is further enhanced by the addition of a small proportion of Barbera and Pinot Noir grapes from the same vineyards. The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness, crushed and the skins left in contact with the juice for 12 hours at a low temperature before gentle pressing. After a slow, cool fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks the wine was bottled young to preserve freshness and aromas.
Pale coral pink, this is a fresh and fruity rosé with delicate aromas of red berries. A delicate yet juicy palate with good intensity of ripe berry and cherry fruit. A lightly creamy texture with zesty acidity, leading to a crisp, dry finish.
Serve chilled as an aperitif or to accompany salads, cold meats such as salami or smoked chicken or seafood dishes.
