TM Rosé 2020
A rainy and mild Winter, followed by a dry and fresh Spring. The phenological phases evolved normally, as budding that happened in the last week of March. Veraison happened during the second decade of July. Summer too was quite dry, fresh in the first half, hot from the end of July. The Merlot dedicated to TM Rosé was hand harvested, from sunrise to noon, the 18th and 20th of August, the Cabernet Franc on the 29th.
Of a shiny pale pink, TM Rosé 2020 offers to the nose genoruse notes of citruses, pink grapefruit, wild strawberries, pineapple, medlar and geranium. Fresh, rich and stimulating, with a sapid and persistent ending. It confirms to be a very versatile wine, perfect for the “aperitivo” and to accompany vegetarian pizzas, oysters, white fishes, fish and meat tartares.
