Notes from the Winemaker:

Giorgio Rivetti, the man who never sleeps, is at it again! His quest to make great wine has taken him from Piedmont to Tuscany, into the world of sparkling wines and aperitivos, and ROSATO.

The Il Rose is a blend of equal parts Sangiovese and Prugnolo Gentile. The six hectare vineyard sits at about 300 meters above sea level and enjoys southern exposure. Bursts of red fruit and citrus makes this a summer sipper best paired with food or conversation.

Inspired by Provencal Rosés, the Rivettis decided to produce one rosé from their porfolio. The fascinating characteristics of Sangiovese and Prugnolo Gentile, permitted us to create a wine that shows great character, an intense aroma, and which is very pleasant to drink. It has a floral and fruity bouquet with hints of citrus and Mediterranean scrub. On the palate, it is wonderfully fresh and delicate with satisfying minerality and an all-embracing acidity.

Vinification:

Destemming and soft pressing, without pressing the berries, in which the must remains briefly in contact with the skins in order to obtain an extremely balanced free-run must. Alcoholic fermentation for about 10 days. Aging in steel tanks on its lees for 3 months.

  • 50% Sangiovese and 50% Prugnolo Gentile
  • Sourced from 20-year-old vines located in Terricciola at 300 meters above sea level with a southern exposure
  • Sandy soils with ocean sediments
  • Berries are destemmed and a portion of the fruit is gently pressed before a 1-hour skin maceration, which includes the free run juice
  • Fermentation occurs over 10 days
  • Lees aging for three months exclusively in stainless steel

91 Points - Vinous Media

“A blend of musky dried peaches and apricot offset by savory herbs wafts up from the 2022 Il Rosé di Casanova. It's zesty and wickedly fresh, with vibrant acidity and wild citrus notes that excite the senses. The 2022 finishes floral and crisp, showcasing nectarine hints. Il Rose di Casanova is a blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Prugnolo Gentile.” - Eric Guido (May 2023)
