Massimago Zurlie Rosé
Type: Rosé frizzante wine
Varietal: 100% Corvina
Color: Unshaken it is a clear pink, a gentle shake and it is hazy salmon pink.
Bouquet: Delicate, dew covered roses on a chilly morning, wild berries, herbs and anise, hints of grass, hay, toasted and fresh, vibrant stony minerality.
Palate: Fresh and juicy with a light, strawberry and salty mineral note. The finish is extremely refreshing.
Pairing: The perfect aperitif. Good paring with cold cuts and fried foods (fish, tempura), risotto, raw fish on ice, oysters, and pizza.
Vinification: The grapes are hand picked between end of August and beginning of September in order to keep high acidity. After a short maceration of few hours the grapes are pressed to get a a pale pink must. The must is cold fermented for a week.
The wine is bottled with its own yeasts for the second fermentation in the bottle. When the yeasts stop their action, they deposit at the bottom of the bottle, the contact with lees increases the complexity of the wine. The pressure in the bottle is 2.5 BAR.
Process and experimentation: Massimago limits the use of sulphites. Every year we start new experiments with the Oenology departments of the Universities of Milan and Conegliano (Padua).
