Rosato Umbria IGT 2018

Vitiano Rosato is produced from 30% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Aleatico grapes, manually harvested at their optimal ripeness.  After a brief period of maceration at a very cool temperature, the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve its freshness and bright color.  Within the same production area as Vitiano Rosso, the soil with the most suitable characteristics was selected to grow these grapes for the vinification of rosato wines.

Tasting Notes

Deep coral-pink in color, Vitiano Rosato delivers clean, juicy aromas of strawberries, plums, and cranberries, along with scents of roses and gardenias.  Vitiano Rosato is the perfect wine for summer; dry, medium-bodied, and refreshing.

Food Pairing

It is delicious with salads, grilled vegetables, grilled salmon or tuna, and alongside mussels marinara.
