Guida ai Vini Rosati: Le 5 Scelte Top per la Tua Estate

Rosé wines, also known as rosés, are a true symbol of elegance and refinement. Characterized by a delicate pink hue and a distinctive flavor, these wines have won over connoisseurs around the world. But how are they produced?

Rosé wines are often fermented in inert containers and rarely use wooden containers such as barrels and barriques. Although some rosés can be appreciated during their maturity, they tend to lose their freshness and the fascinating aromas of fruit and flowers over time, acquiring savory and mineral notes.

Rosé Wine Vinification

The production of rosé wines combines the beginning of red vinification with subsequent white vinification. The color comes from the maceration of the skins in the must for a time that can vary from a few hours to a maximum of two days.

Types of Rosé Wines: From Tradition to New Trends

Vins gris: Pale-colored rosé wines, widespread especially in France.
Blush wines: Originally from America, with varieties such as “White Zinfandel” and “Blanc de Pinot Noir”. The local Pinot Grigio Blush or Rosato is very famous.
Wines of one night and wines of one day: The duration of maceration determines the intensity of coloring, as well as temperature, which is widespread as cold.
Rosés de saignée and Rosés d'assemblage: Special techniques mainly used in the production of Classic Methods and Rosé Champagne.
