2015 Buoncristiani Rosato
A crisp, fruit forward & bone-dry Rosé that is delicious for all occasions. With Syrah & Malbec as the unique varieties of choice to craft this pink puppy, our Rosato continues to prove its fantastic versatility; perfect in settings ranging from black ties to flip-flops, compatible with so many hors d’oeuvres and entrées, and capable of enticing a smile at brunch, lunch, and dinner during all four seasons. As always, we remind you to avoid being “pinkwineaphobic” or you’ll miss out on this extremely limited crowd pleaser.
On a slightly more technical note, our Rosato blend is comprised of Syrah & Malbec fruit sourced from vineyards in Oak Knoll and Coombsville areas of Napa Valley as well as Stagecoach Vineyard above Oakville. The components of this Rosé were fermented in 10% stainless steel and 90% neutral barrels. Primary fermentation was allowed to complete to dryness, while secondary fermentation was suppressed to preserve the crisp acidity and vibrant fruit. This 2015 Rosato was bottled after only 6 months of barrel aging in order to capture the essence of the Syrah & Malbec fruit profile of ripe raspberry, floral perfume, exotic spices, and black cherry, while ensuring proper timing for spring parties and summer BBQ’s.
We, the Buoncristiani brothers, take pride in performing all aspects of enology, viticulture, wine production, marketing, and package design in order to share with you a true expression of our winemaking passion. We hope you join us in embracing
This is a favorite pool-side fall drinker form the brothers at Buoncristiani winery. This wonderful, dry Rosato is made from Malbec and Syrah and is very unique. First, it's dry. As Jay says, "Bone-dry.” It makes it a wonderful, yet lighter choice for lots of different foods, or where you need to open, just one more bottle.
It is NOT your college date's Sutter Home White Zin. This is a fantastic, fruit forward, dry Rosato begging for poolside consumption. Aside from that, it's still versatile enough to pair against a wide variety of foods. We drank this one with Curry, of all things. The stainless fermentation here gives this a great age, without the overbearing oak that would reduce the pairing choices. The fruit is from Oak Knoll, and Stagecoach Vineyard. That variety I'm sure helps this wine bright and well balanced as far as acidity.
Love it Pick up a case, or better yet, reach out to the brothers and check our their "La Famiglia" plan. ..
