Made with 100% Aglianico grapes from carefully selected vineyards, where the nature of the soil, altitudes between 400 and 600 meters above sea level, microclimate and breezy air have always been the indispensable premises for a wine with a very special personality. Rosaenovae Irpinia is one of the Terredora labels produced since the very first harvest. As the name suggests, it seeks to embody a style quite different from the most celebrated southern versions of rosé wine. Very light pink color, elegance and great structure: this, in brief, is the signature of Rosaenovae.
Grape Variety: 100 % Aglianico.
Production Area: selected vineyards in the Irpinia area.
Winemaking: the grapes are harvested at the end of October, then pressed gently, fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.
Tasting Notes: delicate salmon-pink color. The bouquet is very elegant, with fresh aromas of cherry, red fruit and apricot. The palate is dry, well balanced and persistent with succulent flavors of peach and strawberry.
Food Pairings: a very food-friendly wine. It is a fine match for hors d’oeuvres, pasta, risotto, fish soups and white meat.
Best served at 10°-12°C.
