Why we love it
This wonderful rose wine is made using 85% Montepulciano grapes and 15% Passerina's which are manually harvested, stemmed, macerated at a temperature of 4 degrees celcius. It is then aged in stainless steel until the middle of January when the wine is bottled. With its bright pink color, you can smell notes of herbs such as mallow and chamomile. It has a fresh taste and is balanced dry.
Serving temperature: 8 to 10°C Serving suggestions: This rose wine matches perfectly Mediterranean cuisine particularly fried fishes.
The artisan who made it
Nestled in the Abruzzo hills, facing the Adriatic sea, is the small town of Miglianico, is located the Ciavolich winery. Founded in the late 1950's, the Ciavolich winery is now jointly run by wife and husband Chiara and Gianluca. Abruzzo is largely known for the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, but they also grow native grapes such as Cococciola and Passerina, only found in the oldest wineries and in very small quantity.
