A rosé wine is capable of revealing the soul of black grapes. If they are not macerated, but immediately pressed like white grapes, they yield wines with backbone and character.
This is the case of Rosimi.
It is made from Merlot and is aged on the lees for a year in large 2,500-litre oak barrels.
This softens the aromas and rounds the edges, creating a broad, creamy, complex palate.
