Our Rosé of Sangiovese is made using a process called “saignée”, French for “bleeding”. This method involves a short period of skin contact, giving this Rosé its beautiful color and aromatics.
2017 began with high rainfall across most AVAs. Temperature
differences with high heat spells in some areas meant irregular
ripening times. Extra attention was paid to canopy management
and a staggered harvest helped match intense ripeness with good
flavor and acidity. A challenging, rewarding vintage in winemaking.
