Buy Bastianich Rosato di Refosco

Non-discountable item
An intensely colored rosato filled with aromas of rose petals, fresh strawberries, violets and orange peel. Medium weight on the palate with fresh, clean , mouthwatering acidity. Our rosato is actually closer to a light red wine than most other rose wines.

Refosco, known for producing spicy reds with dark fruit flavors (also used in our Vespa Rosso and Calabrone), expresses itself here in a refreshing way with aromatic intensity and unexpected weight on the palate for a rosato. Our dedication and focus on Friuli's indigenous varieties led us to create this unique and easily drinkable expression of Refosco.
Technical notes
40% of the grapes are de-stemmed, soft pressed, then fermented in stainless steel. 50% of the grapes are de-stemmed, soft pressed and fermented using some whole grape clusters and brief skin contact. These whole clusters contribute to added aromas. 10% of juice derives from the Salasso method (juice removed from the macerating Refosco used for Vespa Rosso and Calabrone. This concentrated and complex must imparts additional complexity to our Rosato). After fermentation, the wines are blended and left to integrate in stainless steel for 4 months.

Food pairing
We recommend it on its own as an aperitivo or with smoky, sweet and spicy cuisines.

Producer
The Bastianich winery, founded in 1997, strives to understand the history and culture of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and take it to a new level. Restaurateur Joseph Bastianich with his mother, the renowned chef Lidia Bastianich, bought a vineyard in Buttrio, a town in the Colli Orientali DOC. The family is very precise in their winemaking, controlling yields so that each individual vine produces one bottle of wine. They employ traditional manual methods in the vineyard and create wines that express the character of the land.
