This is our fourteenth release of Rosé! With vibrant color, an enticing aroma and bright fruit flavors, AVV dry Rosé of Sangiovese is a hit all year round.

Although the weather was a bit cooler than usual early in the 2019 growing season, there were no unusual temperature swings during bud break or flowering. The moderate temperatures continued through the summer, allowing the grapes to mature gradually. After 2018’s record setting crop size, 2019 swung back to an average yield. At harvest, the quality of the fruit was excellent with high acidity and intense flavors.

After de-stemming, the fruit was cold soaked for an average of four hours to achieve the classic pink color. We drained off the juice, dug out the skins, and then gently pressed the grapes. The juice went back into the tank and settled for 2 days at 40º before it was racked and inoculated with a French isolate yeast. To preserve the bright aromatics and fruit flavors the juice was fermented slowly at a chilly 50º. The wine was bottled in late February 2020.

Recognized by critics and wine lovers as one of the country’s best, our 2019 Rosé is brightly colored with a light pink hue that alludes to the rich style. Aromas of guava, strawberry, watermelon, raspberry and mint explode out of the glass, while the flavors of watermelon, strawberry, peach, berries and nice minerality keep you coming back for a second bottle.

This is pure California sunshine in a glass and appeals to a broad group of wine lovers.
