To create this rose’ wine, we drained out part of the juice of a freshly crushed Pinot Noir after 24 hours of maceration. This slightly pink-colored juice was then fermented over fresh Muscat grape skins. The fermentation was carried out at low temperatures to keep the aromas and flavors from both varieties. The result was a rose’ wine with refreshing and vibrant aromas of cherry, pineapple and lychee. Inspired by the Italian saying, ‘dolce far niente’ or ‘sweet and simple lifestyle’, this wine was named Rosso Leggero. Enjoy this exclusive wine now or later in the year, especially with friends and family.
