Sergio Drago 2021 Rosa
A rosé for the summer to drink cold or for the winter months at room temp. Made from 100% Nero d’Avola and harvested early with respect to the sugar and phenolic ripeness. Pre-fermentation maceration in press for 5-6 hours then direct delicate pressing and spontaneous fermentation in steel. Aged in steel for 5 months. A supremely refreshing wine with a dark pink color that resembles fresh pressed strawberries. Flavors of bright red fruits (we think of strawberries) and herbs (basil) with just a touch of creaminess to round out the acidity. A serious thirst quencher.
