"Pale pink. Grapefruit aromas are dominant on the nose and in the mouth. Tart and juicy, this tastes and smells like a pink-colored Sauvignon Blanc, so this will likely find many fans, but I was left scratching my head. Finishes bright and juicy. A blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Prugnolo Gentile (the biotype of Sangiovese typical of the territory of Montepulciano). -- Ian D'Agata"
Giorgio Rivetti, the man who never sleeps, is at it again! His quest to make great wine has taken him from Piedmont to Tuscany, into the world of sparkling wines and aperitivos, and ROSATO.
The 2018 Il Rose is a blend of equal parts Sangiovese and Prugnolo Gentile. The six hectare vineyard sits at about 300 meters above sea level and enjoys southern exposure. Bursts of red fruit and citrus makes this a summer sipper best paired with food or conversation.
Giorgio Rivetti produces approachable yet age-worthy wines that capture the attention of wine critics and consumers year-in and year-out with their lushness, concentration, aromatics, and length. From his recently-acquired Tuscan estate, Casanova della Spinetta, located in the hills south of Pisa in the heart of Tuscany, come two cru Sangiovese wines from 40+-year-old vines. Both are 95% Sangiovese with 5% Colorino aged one year in French-oak barrels.
Furthermore, never let it be said that the greatness of La Spinetta is unavailable to the average consumer—it’s actually quite the opposite! Giorgio’s entry-level value wines are some of his best and his Nero di Casanova, the young-vines blend of Sangiovese with a bit of Colorino is a great way to experience the success of La Spinetta’s move into Tuscany.
