Le Fornaci Rosé

10.90

This intense and harmonious wine, which combines structure with elegance, comes from the historic Lugana zone on the southern shore of Lake Garda.

An exclusive wine that is a celebration of Lake Garda’s terroir, with its grape varieties, aromas, and flavors. It is the result of a very careful selection of Turbiana, the premium grape of the Lugana area, and of Rondinella, an indigenous variety of the Valpolicella zone, as well as of the particular processing of their musts during vinification.

Description

 Le Fornaci Rosé is a blend of the indigenous Turbiana (90%) and Rondinella (10%) grape varieties, and a symbolic union of terroirs from two sides of the lake. Turbiana from Tenuta Le Fornaci, just outside Sirmione, meets Rondinella from a vineyard we own in Peschiera del Garda to create a wine with a unique colour that is the result of meticulous work that began with the careful selection of the grapes, through to the delicate phases of pressing and vinification. The soft colour, reminiscent of rose petals, is the prelude to a rich bouquet: fragrant and fine, with aromas of pink grapefruit, peach blossom, hints of minerals and tangerine peel.

Information


Tasting Note


The pale pink hue, with highlights that are reminiscent of rose petals, introduces a rich bouquet: fragrant and fine, with aromas of pink grapefruit, peach blossom, mineral hints, and mandarin orange zest. Matured in stainless steel, it offers a fresh, fruity, subtle flavor. Its vibrant acidity again recalls notes of citrus zest, and the finish is persistent and harmonious.



Serving Suggestions


Served cool, it is perfect as an aperitif or with delicately flavored hors d’oeuvres. It is excellent with fish main courses or Asian dishes, and ideal for accompanying pizza; its versatility makes it a wine for any time of year and for any occasion.



Origin


A selection of Turbiana from the vineyards of the Le Fornaci estate just outside Sirmione and Rondinella from a vineyard owned by the Tommasi family at Peschiera del Garda: an encounter between two enchanting shores of Lake Garda.



Grapes


90% Turbiana, 10% Rondinella



Vinification and Maturation


The Turbiana and Rondinella are carefully selected, harvested at the same time, and brought to the winery. They are put – separately – into the press to macerate for one hour. This phase of skin contact, in which the substances that give the wine its particular color are released, is the most sensitive. The grapes (again separately) then undergo a very gentle pressing for 2 hours, from which the free-run juice of the two varieties is obtained. At the end of these delicate processes, the two musts are blended together. The resulting liquid is chilled and racked, and then inoculated with selected yeasts. The alcoholic fermentation is maintained at controlled temperatures of between 15° and 18°C for 10 days; the wine then matures for 4 months in stainless steel.

Vineyard

Guyot-owned vineyards in Desenzano del Garda planted with a high density. One parcel is on a calcareous soil, variously stratified and clayey, the other two has a more sandy composition and it is rich in silt. The selection of the grapes from the clay soil gives body and structure, the sandy soil instead gives aroma and elegance.
