75cl * 12.5% ABV * Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy

The fruit was sourced entirely from Masi’s own vineyards in the Venetian foothills, in particular the Strà del Milione estate in Friuli. Soils are mainly calcareous over basalt and clay.

This wine was made using Masi’s double fermentation system. Eighty-five percent of the grapes were immediately vinified at controlled temperatures using selected yeasts. The remaining fifteen percent of grapes were dried for fifty days on bamboo racks before being added, provoking a spontaneous second fermentation. Colour was obtained through two hours in the press at 10ºC before fermentation, and afterwards the wine was matured in tank for sixty days with weekly batonnage.

Brilliantly characterful rosé, delicate in colour but full of flavour, with lip smacking cherry and blackcurrant fruit character, some creamy complexity, and a refreshing dry finish.
