Rosa dei Masi 2018

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 2018 wine-growing year has been characterised by a sometimes tropical spring climate, with strong and abundant rainfall alternating with hot and sunny days. Despite the frequent rainfall, total precipitation was not above the seasonal average, guaranteeing an extremely healthy crop and at the same time an increase in terms of quantity, up 10% compared to 2017. The Refosco grapes for the Rosa dei Masi were harvested in optimum health. Quantities are up by 15% compared to 2017.

tasting note

Salmon pink in colour with cherry 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. To be drunk while still young.
