Soul Rosè Franciacorta DOCG Rosè Millesimato
Soul Rosè Franciacorta DOCG by Contadi Castaldi winery is an original Franciacorta, in a modern style, making skilful use of the Pinot nero grapes. It is obtained from 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Nero grapes. Vinification starts with soft pressing after cold (17-18 °C) maceration of about 3-4 hours. Cold settling and inoculation with selected yeast. Fermentation of 20 days in stainless steel. Partial malolactic fermentation. The first againg lasts about 7 months, partly in steel and partly in barriques, then the wine is bottled for ageing on the lees from 24 to 30 months. Post-disgorgement refinement of about 3-4 months.
It has a beautiful coral pink colour, very bright, with a fine and persistent perlage. The nose has clear notes of wild berries, fresh rose petals, hints of apple and tropical fruit. The mouth is structured, crisp and lively, tangy and sensually upbeat. The finish is long and well balanced. We suggest to serve it at 6-8 °C.

Chosen for you
The name Contadi Castaldi is a synthesis of the ancient history of Franciacorta, its 19 municipalities and their vocation for outstanding agriculture. In 1500, when the Venetian Republic was at the height of its splendour, Franciacorta produced food and wine destined for the tables of princes, kings and rich merchants. For Franciacorta, the beautiful city of Venice was the market of choice for introducing its wines.
