Marchese Antinori Rosé was created to best express the unique characteristics of Pinot Noir, a wine of true personality and of intense, vibrant aromas.
The grapes, harvested strictly by hand, were immediately given a direct and soft pressing in the cellars. The must obtained by this first pressing went into temperature controlled stainless steel fermentation tanks where it went through its alcoholic fermentation. The wine subsequently underwent a second fermentation in bottle, remaining in contact with its fine lees for a lengthy period of time.
The balance and harmony of this rosé wine make it an ideal match for a dinner of shellfish, pigeon, and, in general, white meat. Given its versatility, it makes an interesting match for desserts with berry fruit and bitter chocolate
The proper serving temperature is between 45 and 50 °Fahrenheit (7-9 °Centigrade).
Marchese Antinori Rosé shows a light onion skin color with a creamy foam and an elegant, persistent perlage. The nose is fragrant and well defined, distinguished by the unmistakable character of Pinot Noir and by the light sensations of dried wild flowers. The palate is marked by its freshness, in perfect balance with its structure: a wine of notable harmony and class.
