A pretty, delicate pink rose with red berry and strawberry aromas. A fresh and fruity palate is packed full of summer berry fruit with a soft, rounded mouthfeel, the slightest touch of sweetness balanced by refreshing red cherry crush on the finish.
Set up in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Vini Piemontesi, the leading co-operative in Piemonte. All areas of production, from grape selection through to vinification, maturation, blending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica's Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese. Working closely with growers and cooperatives, our aim is to produce a range of authentic, well-priced wines from local grape varieties. The mainstay of white wine production is Pinot Grigio, sourced from the Pavia region south of Milan, Friuli and the Veneto, with the addition of Prosecco, and Grillo and Catarratto wines from Sicily. The reds come from mature, low yielding vineyards in Sicily, Puglia and Abruzzo, the source of some of Europe's most undervalued and characterful wines. Our most recent project has brought Cannonau and Vermentino from Sardinia to the portfolio.
Produced from grapes grown in northern Italy. The ripest grapes were selected from mature hillside vineyards and hand harvested in early September. The extra ripeness allows the dark-skinned Pinot Grigio grapes develop a pink tinge which is further enhanced by the addition of a small proportion of Pinot Noir grapes from the same vineyards.
The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness and transported to Adria’s cellars where they were crushed and the skins left in contact with the juice for 12 hours at low temperature before gentle pressing. After a slow, cool fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks the wine was bottled young to preserve freshness and aromas.
Serve chilled as an aperitif or to accompany salads, cold meats such as salami, smoked chicken or seafood dishes.
