Winemaking Notes: The Pinot Noir grapes are left to macerate for about five to eight hours at a temperature of 7-8 °C. This is followed by soft pressing to favor the extraction of the must which, characterized by a pretty pink color, begins its first alcoholic fermentation. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine is drawn off the lees and left to mature in stainless steel tanks for about eight months. In the April of the year after harvest, the resulting Pinot Noir is bottled with yeast and sugar for second fermentation. The wine continues to mature on its lees for about 36 months in bottle with regular riddling.

Tasting Notes: The soft pink color is brought to life by a very fine perlage. Giovanni Galliano shows notes of flowers, strawberry, raspberry and aromatic sensations. The palate is deliciously fleshy and savory, with a crisp structure but an elegant and smooth finish full of fruit.

    A burst of sweet smoke gives way to fresh mint, ginger and white strawberries as the 2018 Brut Rosé Giovanni Galliano comes to life in the glass. It washes across the palate with a silken bead of fine bubbles under an air of rosy florals, coming across as savory and mineral in style, with a reverberation of bright acidity. The Giovanni Galliano, a varietal Pinot Noir, finishes with a salty flourish and a slightly bitter twang that leaves the mouth watering for more.
