“Pretty, bright pink colour. Restrained red fruit with delicious floral notes on the palate and a touch of redcurrant. Light but perfectly refreshing and medium bodied. Creamy texture and soft acid – quite different from the Provence model, but just as elegant.”

Producer

Though run by the Boscaini family for six generations, it is really in the last fifty years that Masi has established itself as one of the Venetos most innovative wine producers. In the late 1950s, they identified certain historic vineyard plots which are vinified as Amarone and bottled separately to this day. In 1964, they launched the now-legendary Campofiorin, which revived the technique of a second fermentation with semi-dried grapes. Masi have also rescued the ancient Oseleta variety from extinction, and continue to use it in two of their celebrated Supervenetian wines.


Vineyard

The fruit was sourced entirely from Masis own vineyards in the Venetian foothills, in particular the Strà del Milione estate in Friuli. Soils are mainly calcareous over basalt and clay.


Winery

This wine was made using Masis double fermentation system. Eightyfive percent of the grapes were immediately vinified at controlled temperatures using selected yeasts. The remaining fifteen percent of grapes were dried for fifty days on bamboo racks before being added, provoking a spontaneous second fermentation. Colour was obtained through two hours in the press at 10ºC before fermentation, and afterwards the wine was matured in tank for sixty days with weekly batonnage.


Taste

Brilliantly characterful rosé, delicate in colour but full of flavour, with lip-smacking cherry and blackcurrant fruit character, some creamy complexity, and a refreshing dry finish.
