Grapes: 80% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, 10% Molinara
In northern Italy’s Veneto region, vines are planted to hillside vineyards where they benefit from well-drained, mineral rich, volcanic basaltic rock and calcareous clay soils. The grapes are hand-picked and vinified on the same day to preserve their most delicate flavors. After a brief 12-hour maceration in temperature-controlled tanks on the skins, the wine is drawn off and fermented in stainless steel tanks to ensure absolute freshness. The wine sits in autoclave for 20 to 30 days until the perfect bubble structure is attained.

Radiant pink. Floral, fresh, and fruity with a hint of cherries, strawberries and currants. On the palate, it is fresh, with a long, balanced finish.
This Rosé is robust enough to pair well with many grilled foods like chicken and portabella mushrooms yet delicate enough to pair with lighter fare like fish.

about the grape +
Corvina has bright, relatively delicate cherry fruit flavors, with high acidity and pronounced aromas of cherry, bitter almond and spice.
The fruit for each Caposaldo wine is hand harvested from low-yielding vineyards in prime growing areas in the classic wine regions of Tuscany, the Veneto and Lombardy.
