COMPLIMENTARY SHIPPING ON 12 BOTTLESMIX AND MATCH!

We’re obsessed with all things Italian: pasta, disco, cards, and wine. This is the third vintage of our Rosato, which to us is like a rosé to drink at twilight. It is a rich, softly textured wine that drinks more like fine white wine than your typical pale pink, feather-light rosé. This wine has a deep strawberry color and an appealing heft — perfect for that moment when you transition from the pool to the dinner table for a candlelit, al fresco meal.

53% Primitivo  |  47% Sangiovese

The Primitivo is sourced from Gary Venturi Vineyard and the Sangiovese is sourced from Larry Venturi Vineyard. Both Gary and Larry Venturi’s vineyards are in Calpella, north of Ukiah. Gary’s vines are to the west of Highway 101 and Larry’s are just to the east of the highway.  Both these vineyards are dry-farmed organically.

Being able to pick these varieties at the perfect moment of ripeness is of utmost importance to make a wine that suave without being heavy. Each of the vineyard blocks were harvested and vinified separately. After we received the fruit, we tumbled the grapes in the press ten times before pressing. After settling overnight at ambient temperature, each lot was racked with light lees to a stainless-steel tank and a small 10ppm SO2 was added. Each lot was kept in the tank until native fermentation started. The tanks were racked to their fermentation and aging vessels, which were a mixture of large format barrels (500-600L) and 1200L amphora. The wines were topped up at the end of fermentation and aged until winter. The wines underwent native malolactic fermentation. In February, we performed a blend by racking clean to tank then back to their vessels. In March, we clean racked to tank. We performed just one more tank to tank racking before bottling and bottled without fining or filtration
