The Rosato di Ampeleia comes from clay/sandy/limestone soils characterized by a dark-red colour and round pebbles. Whole clusters of Alicante Nero are left to infuse in the must of Carignano; thanks to the fermentative energy in the tank, the clusters are pushed to the surface and while floating and gently swinging, they delicately release their flavor compounds. In the soil texture of our vineyards, sand is not present in big quantity but in the vineyards of the Rosato, sand plays a key role. That is why we decided to give voice to the extraordinary soil diversity of Roccatederighi through the Rosato di Ampeleia and its unique brightness.
