Wine Details

Rosato di Ampeleia is the result of combining two grape varieties: whole clusters of Alicante Nero are left to infuse in the must of Carignano grapes and are pushed to the surface by fermentation, where they sway and delicately release their flavour. Rosato di Ampeleia comes from parcels grown on reddish brown clay/sandy/limestone soils with round pebbles.

Alcohol Grade: 11%
Aging/ Vinification: 20% whole cluster fermentation. 6 months in concrete tanks.
Best to have it: 6-8ºC
Size: 750 ml

The Winery: Ampeleia

After years of experience, Ampeleia has achieved a deeper awareness of the natural world around us and their vineyards. The character of the land emerges clearly in the wines. It is this new awareness that inspired us to conceive a third wine sourced from the youngest vineyards.

Ampeleia (from the Greek word for ‘vine’) is owned by Elisabetta Foradori and Giovani Podini. The winemaker and agronomist, Marco Tait has been with the estate since its inception in 2002. It was founded with Elisabetta’s overarching vision of allowing the true nature of an area, its diversity, its grapes, land, and culture to be expressed. The wildness of the southern Maremma, bounded by the Colle Metallifere and the sea were virgin territory, far removed from the glamour of Bolgheri and Montalcino. The estate is large and biodiverse with a total of 40 ha of vineyard interspersed with chestnut and cork oak forests as well as Mediterranean scrub. There are three parts, across differing altitudes, with differing soils and microclimates: Ampeleia di Sopra; di Mezzo and di Sotto.
