Winemaking Notes: Most of the Sangiovese grapes for the Istine Rosato come from their Cavarchione Vineyard in Gaiole in Chianti. The grapes were planted between 2009 and 2010. To ensure freshness, Angela Fronti picks the Sangiovese grapes early. The grapes are crushed at the winery and left to macerate for around 6 hours before pressing. The grapes ferment slowly for about 50 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation does not occur.

Tasting Notes: The Istine Rosato has aromas of wild strawberries, cherries, and a touch of herbs. The palate is fresh with beautiful red fruit flavors and a mineral backbone. This is a versatile food wine through summer and fall.
