Lvnae Bosoni Liguria Levante "Mea Rosa" IGT 2019
Mea Rossa is made of 100% Vermentino Nero, an ancient autochthonous vine rediscovered and re-proposed after a long period of research and study by experts. When it was first released at VinItaly in 2010, Mea Rosa was awarded as the best Italian Rosé of the year 2010.
A meticulous and respectful wine-making technique was used to enhance the vine qualities and produce a vivid and intense pink coloured rosé, which reminds you of the pomegranate. Refined with great elegance, it is characterized by notes of red fruits like cherry and wild strawberries, with a subtle hint of spice. The mouth and nose are enriched by a fruity and refreshing layer of flavours, providing an enveloping and soft touch.
The Vermentino Nero was cultivated according to traditional methods and its vineyard is located at the Village of Ortonovo in the Province of La Spezia, Liguria. This perfect position provides a unique microclimate, where the alternating actions of the sea and mountain breezes create the perfect conditions for cultivating vines and producing excellent wines. The sandy and skeletal soil of medium texture also enhance the aromas of the wines.
The grapes are handpicked in small 15kg boxes, go through 36 hours of cold maceration, and then ferment at controlled temperature before refining in stainless steel vats.
