Rosa dei Masi 2017

Region: Italy / Friuli
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. This wine is a Supervenetian, and a “brother” to Campofiorin, the famous red wine. After harvesting, 85% of perfectly ripe Refosco grapes are freshly vinified while the remaining 15% undergo appassimento for approximately 50 days. This process is followed by soft pressing and two hours of maceration in the press at 50°F to complete the process.

harvest note

The 2017 vintage is characterized by widespread and unexpected frosts in the spring mixed with unseasonably hot weather and unusual droughts. In general, weather conditions led to early ripening, brought forward by about 10 days. The Refosco grapes for Rosa dei Masi are in perfect health. Quantities are below average because of the small amount of damage caused by late frosts but quality did not suffer.

tasting note

Salmon pink in color with cherry-colored reflections. Elegant bouquet of wild strawberries and cherries on the nose. Well balanced on the palate with a soft body and attractive freshness. Very dry and long on the finish, which ends with the same fruitiness seen first on the nose.

food pairing

Excellent as an aperitif and with antipasti, light pasta dishes, shellfish and seafood.
