MALVASIA OF SCHIERANO
Rosetta is produced with Malvasia grapes grown in the area of Castelnuovo don Bosco. Malvasia of Schierano is one of the many grape varietals with this name, yet it is unique and different from all the others – as soon as you walk through one of these vineyards when the red grapes are nicely ripe, you will feel enveloped by a pleasant scent of fresh rose. Rosetta is the true daughter of Piedmont where, according to tradition and not a trend, sweet wines have a low alcohol content (5,5 % vol.), light bubbles and a rich nose. For those who don’t know it yet, Rosetta is a pleasant surprise: a lively wine, so sweet and aromatic with intense notes of rose, you will love it right from the start. It is ideal for special occasions and to finish a meal with fruit cakes and sweets. Also an incomparable “terrace wine“ to enjoy on a pool deck. On the label is the rosa canina (dog rose) that describes its primary aroma better than anything else.

The vinification starts with cold maceration for two days of the freshly pressed grape juice before it is put in the wine press: the free-run has therefore right from the start its strong fragrance and nice colour. After being decanted, the must is kept in steel vats at low temperatures until fermentation, which can take place up to a few months after the harvest. Does not need ageing in the bottle.
Cherry red in colour with a little crown. Bouquet of wild rose and strawberries, sweet and balanced while the tannins are just slightly perceptible leaving intact the plaesentness of the wine. Natural and lively with a balanced palate.
