harvest note

The 2017 vintage in central Umbria defies easy description. The cycle of events through the growing season were unusual. The winter was uncharacteristically mild and dry. Vines never quite remained dormant for long, and the area was experiencing a drought. Fast forward to spring, and moderate temperatures prompted early budding. Thankfully, the area was not affected by an early frost. Early budding varieties had more success through the entire season. By May however, the drought had intensified, unusually high summertime temperatures arrived, and late budding varieties suffered to set fruit properly. Yields were lower (by 40% in Salviano’s case), so care and hard work in the vineyard were most important. An earlier than usual harvest (by three weeks) arrived, yet the quality of the fruit was undiminished despite the circumstances. Overall, while the wines have slightly lower total acids and higher pH levels, the purity of fruit and aromatics maintain typical characteristics of the region.

tasting note

Bone dry, medium body, with delicate acidity. Gentle aromas of spring berries supported by earthy flavors.

food pairing

This Rosé is succulent and savory. The body is substantial enough to take on a range of meats from cured to rare, such as tartare.
