Pretty, soft with field strawberry notes. Light-bodied and fresh without a lot of acidity. Lovely as a chilled aperitif or pair with seafood.

Reviews and Ratings

Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

An Italian gem from Ruffino, that is light salmon-coloured offering aromas of raspberries, strawberries and lemon. This is a straightforward rosé with low to medium acidity and subdued field berry flavours and a short finish.

I would serve this with shrimp appetizers.

Reviewed by Nicole T. Lewis on September 19th, 2016.
The grapes for this wine are grown in vineyards best known for rosé wine production. Rosatello is produced with red grapes which undergo a cold maceration on the skins in order to exalt the primary aromas and develop the characteristic pink nuance.

The grapes are then pressed softly and fermented in stainless-steel barrels at a temperature of 14°C to complete the vinification. The wine remains in the tanks, controlled at a low temperature, until it is bottled.

The colour is a vibrant pink. The aromas are intense, fruity and inviting with fragrant notes of summer fruit, such as strawberry and peaches.

Tasting profile: Middle structure, with a fragrant and very fresh flavour. Delicate and long-lasting finish with scents of fruit and herbs. Ideal as an aperitif. This wine was first produced in 2012.
