Antinori Guado al Tasso Scalabrone Rosato di Bolgheri 2018

Scalabrone is light peony pink in color.  On the nose fragrant notes of red fruit and light aromas of ripe yellow fruit complete its bouquet.  The palate is vibrant with pleasing freshness and a fruity persistent finish.

A distinguished rosé from this great Bolgheri estate, with a fresh, fruity nose dominated by raspberry aromas; well-balanced and elegant on the palate with a long finish of raspberry and rose.

A distinguished rosé from this great Bolgheri estate, with a fresh, fruity nose dominated by raspberry aromas; well-balanced and elegant on the palate with a long finish of raspberry and rose.

The 2018 season was for the most part rainy, particularly during winter and spring.  These climatic conditions abundantly replenished groundwater reserves in the soil that were drastically depleted after 2017’s drought conditions.   Bud break occurred a week later than average.  During the growth period, with higher than average temperatures and frequent rain showers, the vineyards required timely maintenance and management to guarantee normal development of the vines.  Summer trends were regular, with hot dry days that provided optimal conditions for slow, constant ripening of the grapes.  Harvesting of Scalabrone’s grapes began with Merlot on August 22nd and continued with Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon coming to a close on September 6th.

Scalabrone’s three grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, were harvested and fermented separately.  Grapes were destemmed, delicately crushed and transferred to the press for a short maceration period, from 3 to 5 hours, at low temperatures to intensify the richness of emerging aromatic qualities.  After pressing, the must was put in stainless steel fermentation tanks where alcoholic fermentation occurred at a constant temperature of 16° C (61° F).  Each individual lot was carefully and systematically evaluated and then blending was performed.  Scalabrone was bottled in January 2019.

Scalabrone is light peony pink in color.  On the nose fragrant notes of red fruit and light aromas of ripe yellow fruit complete its bouquet.  The palate is vibrant with pleasing freshness and a fruity persistent finish.
