80% Pinot Nero and 20% Chardonnay, with each component fermented separately in small oak barrels. A mere 24-36 hours of maceration on skins for the Pinot delivers a mottled onion skin to bright coral hue. Lees ageing in excess of 30 months imbues the wine with scents of ripe strawberries, mandarin, musk, rose hip and citrus balm, all enveloped by a telltale creamy toastiness and a long linger of flavour. The dosage, as is de rigueur here, is low. Very. A mere 1.5 grams per litre, puts this sumptuous rosé firmly in the extra brut camp.
