Villa Santera Rosato
Our selection of rosé wine is now enriched by the last born“Villa Santera
Rosato” obtained by 100% Primitivo grapes. Generally this grapes is used to obtain rich and lasting wines where smoothness and opulence are the main features. Apparently these characteristics are very far away from the idea of rosé wine, but all depends from the vineyard management .
The Primitivo grapes is described by strong hints of berries that, in the case of red wines, turn into mature fruits and jam aroma. If this kind of grapes are harvested between the second and the third decade of August, before that the process of dehydratation starts, we can obtain rosé wines with fruity and fresh marks, highlighted by rosé vinification, very typical of this kind of grapes. The result will be a real fresh-squeezed juice of primitivo, without any effects of oak or drying process.
Wine of a light pink colour with shiny re ex.The nose has hints of redberries and owers notes that make it very ele- gant. In the mouth it is very fresh and smooth and invites you to drink the second glass.
