Santa Margherita Sparkling Rosé brings together in an exciting and intriguing sparkling wine three different grape varieties, with diverse personalities and origins, from different Italy’s leading premium wine production areas, where the winery operates since ever: the valley of the River Adige, and the eastern Veneto. The cuvée is blended from a white wine basis with a pink wine obtained from a brief maceration of red wine grapes with the skins. Second fermentation takes about one month in pressure tanks at a controlled temperature of 15° C. Once the desired pressure of about 5.5 bar has been reached, the wine is cooled to block further fermentation and encourage settling, maturing on the lees in the pressure tank for two/ three months.
A pink hue introduces a subtle succession of floral fragrances lifted by white fruits and delicate hints of red berry fruits. This vibrant fragrances on the nose are satisfyingly matched by the lively and long-lingering freshness on the palate for a brilliantly versatile drinking experience that is all lightness and easy-drinking appeal.
Delicious as an aperitif and excellent for accompanying a vast range of fishbased savory starters and tasty dishes or with all sorts of light textured, aroma-rich culinary creations. Also try Santa Margherita Sparkling Rosé with hot, spicy foods from the cuisines of the Far East
