Villa Saletta Spumante Rosé Millesimato 2013, Tuscany, Italy

Villa Saletta

Sparkling rosé wine, 75cl. Medium bodied 100% Sangiovese from Tuscany, Italy. 12.0% ABV.

This sparkling rosé made from 100% Sangiovese grapes and coming from a single vineyard within the estate, the wine is made using the traditional method ( metodo classico ) with no sugar added. The wine is hand-riddled, aged on the yeast for four years prior to hand-disgorging. The result is a spumante that has less than 2grams of sugar per litre, making it less than Extra Brut ( pas dosé), which gives it a soft, aromatic effervescence. The wine boasts a dry, lightly structured style. It can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif and pairs beautifully with appetisers and other light dishes. Equally, it drinks wonderfully as an accompaniment to first courses such as seafood pasta.
