Notes from Tenuta delle Terre Nere:

“I produced this wine for the first time in 2007. Don't get me wrong: I really like beautiful rosé wines. I just never thought I'd make one. It wasn't my priority. But it was for my daughter Elena. The attraction of pink to the fairer sex is well known, especially at the venerable age of 3. Having painted the cellar pink just wasn't enough. Was there a red wine? Was there a white one? Well, we also needed a pink one! And the extraordinary versatility of Nerello, I soon discovered, was just what was needed. Not an easy wine to make. Quite the contrary: balance is sought on tiptoe. The Platonic ideal, at least as I see it, if I am allowed to express myself thus, would be the rosé that has the body of a white and the soul of a red. Anyway, this is what I'm looking for: a wine that is joyful without being frivolous; that has tension without being austere. And I feel we are close. " Marco de Grazia

Our rosé is bright, even nervous, but never superficial. The joy it conveys is refined, with the ability to wonderfully refine over time. Not that there is any reason to age it. But, as it ages, it is surprising to discover its freshness combined with an unexpected complexity in a rosé. Fish, poultry, soups, pasta, ham and melon, salami and figs, bread, olives and cheese. Extreme versatility".
