Upper Galilee, Naftali ridge.
70% Sangiovese, 15% Pinot Noir, 11% Grenache, 4% Syrah
Sparkling pink in color, the wine presents tempting aromas of strawberry, pomegranate, sour cherry, blood orange and spice. A dry and verdant rosé with refreshing acidity.
The red Sangiovese grapes, which were harvested in August, followed a “white wine process” immediately upon their arrival to the winery, including static settling for 24 hours and cold fermentation at 14°C (57°F). Rosé was produced from the Pinot Noir, Grenache and Syrah grapes in the saignée (bleeding) method, where a small percentage of juice from the red wine tanks was drawn off a few hours after receiving the grapes, and then fermented separately.
Following a rainy winter, the 2013 harvest season was characterized by relatively mild weather, enabling optimal vine growth and outstanding grape quality. The harvest’s unique climatic conditions led to uniform ripening in the vineyards, leading to most of the harvested fruit arriving at the winery in September. The quality of this harvest appears to be very high.
