2018 G.D. Vajra Rosabella Rosato (SOLD OUT)
"Rosabella is a rosé de saignée, produced with the lighted touch in order to preserve the lightness and fragrance of our grapes. First produced between 2004 and 2007, Rosabella is a focus on Nebbiolo, with small amounts of Barbera and Dolcetto.
Fruit for the 2018 Rosabella comes from young estate vineyars located in the villages of Barolo, La Morra, Novello and Serralunga. In 1971, Aldo Vaira was one of the earliest adopters of organic farming in Piemonte. Vineyards have been nurtured and soil preserved by natural grassing and cover crop for almost 50 years now. Production will be certified organic starting from 2019 vintage.
In 2018, fruit for Rosabella was picked mostly between August 29th and 31st, in order to retain freshness, bright aromatics and a moderate alcohol level. Saignée was carried on Nebbiolo, while the remaining fruit underwent a short skin contact before pressing. Fermentation at free temperature below 24°C. This wine underwent no malolactic fermentation. 2018 Rosabella spent a short time in stainless-steel prior to bottling in December 2018."
"2018 Rosabella is a delicate and translucent wine, with a pale rose hue in the glass. Nose is floral, rich, with rose petals, raspberry, fresh strawberry and strawberry blossoms, cherry stone and a very distinctive signature of Nebbiolo. In the mouth, it discloses a lovely balance and texture, with aromatics of oriental citrus, strawberry, raspberry, orange blossoms and a hint of incense. It finishes long, soft and fruity.
