Overview

Sangiovese was purposefully selected for our Rosé due to its varietal charm and savoury tannins. These virtues are perfectly compatible to our pursuit of a drier and more structured style of Rosé.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The 2011 il Vescovo Sangiovese Rosé exudes rose petal and cranberry aromas.

Palate

The palate explodes with the flavours of fresh juicy raspberries and redcurrants finishing with a lingering pomegranate and chalky feel. We have opted for a drier style, as this in combination with the textural mouth feel showcases the intricacies of Sangiovese and also allows for the wine to be enjoyed with food.
