Flametree Sangiovese Rose 2013
Made in the traditional Rosé method by crushing and chilling Sangiovese grapes, then leaving them on skins for 6 hours prior to pressing and settling. The 2013 Sangiovese Rosé was stainless steel fermented using an aromatic yeast strain, the yeast was then stirred for 3 months at weekly intervals. The aim being to preserve the red fruits and provided added texture in the finished wine.
The 2013 Sangiovese Rosé is pale salmon pink in colour while deceiving floral rose petal, strawberry, musk and red cherry characters fill the nose. The palate is elegant and savoury, moderate weight with a rustic mineral finish. This is a wonderful summer wine that should be served chilled and enjoyed with friends. Refreshing on its own, although delicious when served with Asian style dishes.
