Rosé Wines

The category of rose wines has recently shown a rising interest; they are wines with fresh and delicate perfumes, that let the consumer enjoy from the first till the last sip. In this wine shop you have the possibility to choose between a great selection of more than a hundred Italian rose wines from some of the best wineries, like the “Lagrein rosé Kretzer” from South Tyrol to the “chiaretto del Garda” like the “Bardolino Chiaretto” and “Chiaretto Valtènesi”, along with a huge selection of rose wine from the South of Italy like, for example, the “Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo”, the “Etna Rosato”, and the Apulian rose wines from Salento (above all the rose wine “Negroamaro”) and some other expressions of rose wine from Sicily.

How is it made? In opposition to what’s assumed by an old myth, the rose wine isn‘t generated by combining some red and some white wine. This mechanism is allowed only for the production of sparkling wines (for example, the „Prosecco Rosé“ is made by adding a part of „Pinot Noir“ to the „Glera“). The peculiarity of the rose wine, that differences it from a red and a white wine, is the crucial role represented by the vinification phase. Besides the variety of grapes and the area of origin, the fundamental feature that distinguishes a rose wine from the other types of wine is the duration of the maceration on the skins: the maceration can take less than two hours, if we want to obtain a rose wine with a pale tonality, it can last about 12 hours, if we want a colour similar to the “Cerasuolo”, or 24 hours for a lighter rose wine, till a general maximum of two days.

Due to their minor astringence but major structure compared to a white wine, one of the strengths of a rose wine is the pairing. In fact, they have such a great versatility to be able to replace the red and the white wines, or, in addition, to enhance some particular dishes, like the asparagus. General speaking, for a wine like a rose “Lagrein Kretzer”, a “Bardolino Chiaretto” or a slightly sparkling rosé wine, you can choose a similar pairing as it is done for a structured white wine. On the other side, a rose wine of medium structure, like the rose wine from Salento, an “Etna Rosé” or a “Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo” can have the same combination used for a red wine of medium structure.

From the rose bubble wine by Paltrinieri to the rose sparkling wines “D'Araprì”, “Zamuner” or the “Franciacorta Rosé” by La Valle, to the rose wines from “Oltrepò Pavese” by Calatroni to the ones in the South of Italy by Marisa Cuomo, scroll down below and discover all the expressions of rose wine at reasonable prices by the wine shop Wine Online.
