Winemaking Notes: The Istine Rosato is produced from Sangiovese grapes grown in the Casanova Vineyard. This vineyard is located in the high altitude Radda subregion of Chianti. The elevation helps the grapes retain their acidity. To ensure freshness, Angela Fronti picks the Sangiovese grapes early. The grapes are crushed at the winery and left to macerate for a day before pressing. The grapes ferment slowly for about 50 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes: The Istine Rosato has aromas of wild strawberries, cherries and a touch of herbs. The palate is fresh with beautiful red fruit flavors and a mineral backbone. This is a versatile food wine through summer and fall.
