A new vintage of Rosso Fresco is out and we are stoked! So, we open the bottle, pour a glass...swirl, sniff, taste...and "Wow...Fun, Fresh, Delish and damn good!" These are the first words out when writing the notes about our new 2018 vintage of Rosso Fresco and have been for years. Rosso Fresco is an easy-going red blend whose varieties and proportions change with each vintage. The 2018 version is comprised of 64% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc, 6% Blaufrankisch and 4% Dornfelder. There are beautiful high-toned aromas and flavors of red cherry, red raspberry, red plum, red current, spice and earth. This dry red wine is medium bodied, has moderate (12%) alcohol, balanced acid, very soft, silky tannins and a juicy persistent finish. Rosso Fresco is a playful, full-flavored, fun, friendly red wine that pairs well with pastas and just about any fish, fowl or four-legged food you serve with it. The 2018 Rosso Fresco has a Long Island AVA and is made from hand-harvested grapes from both the North and the South forks. All the grapes were de-stemmed, crushed by foot and punched down by hand. Our 2018 Rosso Fresco was fermented wild/ambiently, was not fined, and filtered once. The wine spent five months in stainless steel tanks and a few older oak barrels before bottling. Our 2018 Rosso Fresco is a very versatile red wine and will bring you year-round pleasure. The wine was handled minimally and bottled on March 11th, 2019. Enjoy our 2018 Rosso Fresco at cellar temperature over the next two to four years. Or put a slight chill on it if it's hot out! We bottled 818 cases of this fragrant and amazingly yummy wine.
