Description

Poggerino Spumante Rosé 2013


Poggerino Spumante Rosé is Tuscany's only sparkling Rosé! Aged on the lees for approximately 4 years to perfection. Rose colour in the glass with an orange hue. Complex nose emitting peach, cherry and creamy brioche layers. Gives way to subtle baking spices, stewed fruit and a weight that is balanced perfectly. A beautifully prominent acidity on the palate that highlights the wine's personality and flavour. Age-worthy sparkling wine is hard to come by and this expression shows the craftsmanship of a top winemaker.

100% Sangiovese from Poggerino's organic vineyards in Radda in Chianti. Poggerino’s vineyards sit 400–500 metres above sea level and face south-southwest. The soil is very rocky due to the breakup of local “galestro” rock, which provides optimal drainage. These factors are all essential in the quest to produce great Sangiovese.
After a manual harvest the grapes go through an immediate pressing. Alcoholic fermentation begins without the addition of yeasts at 13–15°C with frequent battonage. No malolactic fermentation. Clarification, filtration and second fermentation of the wine occurs the following spring. After approximately 44 months, disgorgement takes place using the same wine for the dosage. The wine then ages for a minimum of 3 months before sale.
