Lacrimarosa Irpinia Rosato DOC 2018

The name Lacrimarosa (translated pink tear) comes from the method of gently pressing the grapes in order to give the wine a slight pink color and a beautiful range of aromas and flavors. Made from 100% Aglianico grapes, this wine is vinified and then aged in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

This wine is light pink in color with a fruity yet delicate bouquet of white peaches, honey, strawberries, raspberries, peonies, and currants.

Food Pairing

This is a complex wine that matches wonderfully with antipasti, risotto, pasta dishes with grilled vegetables, and white meats.
