Rèmole epitomises the vibrant expression of Toscana lifestyle; the pleasure of conviviality and a good wine that unites all walks of life. The historic house of Rèmole, the ‘Villa Rèmole’, is surrounded by vineyards and is situated in Sieci, 10 miles east of Florence. It is the custodian of over 700 years of history and tradition of the Frescobaldi family, as it is where many of the family members grew up. The Rèmole wines are wonderfully versatile, complementing a variety of cuisine styles; they are soft and fruity and will captivate and delight you.
A relatively dry and mild winter led to earlier budding than usual. The spring rainfall guaranteed excellent water reserves during the long, dry summer with temperatures consistently exceeding 30°C, which guaranteed grapes in excellent health.
The grapes are sourced from vineyards in central Tuscany with the best exposures, ensuring the optimum ripening of the berries. The vineyard soils are calcareous clay and rich in stone, providing good drainage.
Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, preserving the delicate aromas and purity of fruit. The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation retaining the fresh, crisp palate. It was matured for four months in tank, resulting in a fresh, vibrant and fruity wine.
Rèmole Rosato is a brilliant pink, with a bouquet of well defined raspberry scents complemented by lovely hints of sweet, ripe cherry. Soft and creamy on the palate, with a clear note of acidity that adds freshness and perfectly balances the natural softness.
This light, crisp rosé is a terrific aperitivo wine, but also is a versatile accompaniment to fish or vegetarian first and main courses.
