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

The 2020 growing season enjoyed near-perfect growing conditions. The year began with unseasonably warm temperatures, and lower than normal rainfall. This was followed by weeks of steady daytime heat and cool evenings, allowing the grapes to ripen evenly. At harvest, the quality of the fruit was excellent with high acidity and intense flavors.

The grapes were gently pressed and held for 3 hours to get the proper color in the press. The juice was sent to a tank where it was cold settled for close to 48 hours and then racked off its sediment to another tank for fermentation, where it was inoculated with a French isolate yeast. To preserve the bright aromatics and fruit flavors the juice fermented slowly at a chilly 50º.

Recognized by critics and wine lovers as one of the country’s best, our 2020 Rosé is brightly colored with a vibrant 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. With bright acidity and a long dry finish this wine appeals to everyone!
