2018 Rosato d'Amici
Rosato is the Italian name for rosé, which we make by harvesting a few weeks before full ripeness, then pressing quickly to yield a light, bright pink color.
Keeping with our habit of blending Barbera and Sangiovese, for 2018 we looked to fruit from our growing partners in central Mendocino county to make this lovely rosato. Made completely naturally, as always, we kept it 'sur lie' (on the sediments) for five months to give it extra richness on the palate.
