Scalabrone Bolgheri DOC Rosato Guado al Tasso
Bolgheri, now renowned for its important reds, is traditionally known aldo for rosé wines of intense scents. Scalabrone is made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, with an hint of Syrah and it has a distinct personality, with an intense colour and a fruity bouquet. This wine is part of the production of Tenuta Guado Al Tasso of the famous Italian wine cellar Antinori, about 80 km south-west of Florence, near the medieval village of Bolgheri, in Maremma.
The grapes are collected and vinified separately before being dirasped, crushed gently, ready to brief maceration of about 3-5 hours at low temperatures, in order to extract all rich aromatic essences. After pressing, the must is moved into stainless steel tanks, where alcoholic fermentation is carried out at a controlled temperature of 16 °C.
In the glass, the wine shows a bright pink peony slightly drained colour. The nose is intense and rich in floral notes and sweet fruity scents, reminiscent of cherry and raspberry. The palate is fresh and balanced, with a fruity and persistent aftertaste.
