Rosa dei Masi 2016
Grapes: 100% Refosco
A fresh and fruity rosé wine, but complex and elegant at the same time. A new interpretation of the rosé wine category thanks to the use of Masi’s specialty Appassimento technique. Th is wine is a Supervenetian, and a “brother” to Campofiorin, the famous red wine.
International Rose Drink Pink Wine Competition2016 vintage
The weather was hot for most of the summer, with temperatures above average for the season and an almost complete lack of rainfall. However, this didn’t change soil temperatures in any significant fashion and water resources remained constant. In fact, the slight stress caused by drought that there was contributed positively to an accumulation of polyphenols and sugars. The final phase of the ripening process was excellent, and we were able to harvest ripe, healthy grapes in an ideal state for vinification and with notable aromatic complexity. Quantities are forecast to be more than 10% above the average for the last ten years. The harvest began 10 days in advance of normal with white varieties being picked at the end of August. Everything points to an exceptionally good year.
Salmon pink with cherry-coloured reflections. Intense aromas of just ripened berry fruit on the nose, especially raspberries and wild cherries. Soft and well balanced with lively and refreshing acidity. Long and attractive finish
Excellent as an aperitif and with antipasti, light pasta dishes, shellfish and seafood.
