IGT Toscana Rosato "Lunella"

2021
Italy
Tuscany

80% Sangiovese, 20% Canaiolo from 3km outside Siena.  Each variety was separately destemmed and crushed.  After 4 hours of maceration, pink juice was bled off of each tank and a blend was made. This is textural, medium-deep in color, and extremely Tuscan.  3,000 bottles made.  Certified organic.

"The 2021 Rosato Lunella is savory in the glass, with brown spices, hints of ginger cookie, wild herbs and notes of caraway seeds. This is deeply textured and weightier than expected, yet balanced well by cooling acids and mineral tones, as vivid cherry-berry fruits come to the fore. It finishes with medium length and leaves the senses satiated by a pleasant inner sweetness that lingers. The 2021 is really quite unique, but I find myself completely captivated by it. The Luella Toscana Rosato is a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Canaiolo."
