From a tiny vineyard 1300 meters above sea level the grapes for this wine are biodynamically produced with no added yeats, no filtration and minimal use of sulphur. It is packed with red cherry, cranberry and mineraly notes. A real delight.
Awarded 91 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their August 2017 edition review of their Top 30 Rosés (see blue links below).
Elisabetta and Sergio Fagiuoli came to Montenidoli in 1965, enticed there by the beauty of the 13th century paintings of the area. Elisabetta had the land in her heart, she was brought up in a family that had cultivated vines and olive trees in Custoza since the 1700’s and she spent her youth in the vineyards of Valpolicella.
Montenidoli‘s vineyards are organically cultivated. No herbicide, insecticides or any other chemicals have been used for over fifty years. This is a microclimate which is brimming with life. The vineyards are aglow with fireflies by night and dancing with ladybirds by day. Elisabetta and Sergio even decided to raise rabbits so they could make use of their incredibly fertile manure for the vines. They allow the plant roots to work and hoe the ground before tilling the earth each spring. They are always follow their conviction that sunlight and clean air are the best medicine to make the vines healthy and strong, as well as resistant to disease and bad weather. Their wines are of phenomenal quality and are a great testament to all their hard work.
Although it is pearly-pink and almost translucent, this delicate wine has a good strength of character in its aromas and flavours. The nose suggests crushed fresh rose petals while its flavours abound with watermelon and freshness. The finish gives even more as the flavour perspective expands to include notes of both minerals and herbs. It is the perfect aperitif.
Please note - this wine is suitable for both Vegetarians and Vegans.
Lovely pale pink in colour. The fresh nose is composed of citrus aromas such as orange and grapefruit complemented by a full,spicy and fleshy palate with refreshing acidity.
