Rosés to be discovered...
The color of a red, the drinkability of a white: let's talk about rosé wines!
Let's immediately debunk the myth that it is a blend of white and red wines (it is a prohibited practice!): the color is given by the shorter time that the skins spend in maceration with the must, from a few hours to a maximum of two days. Obviously, a longer time corresponds to a more intense color and a more robust structure, even if the vinification then proceeds with the methods used for white. And even the starting vine can change! Negramaro, Malvasia and Aglianico in southern Italy, Pinot Noir in France, Corvina grapes for Bardolino del Garda.
It is easy to understand that the world of rosés is varied and complex: here too we will have fresher and lighter wines, ideal to be served cold for an aperitif, but also more structured and full-bodied, as can be the great champagnes and rosé sparkling wines. Are you ready to discover them?
