NEW VINTAGE ALERT: we featured this beautiful rosato from the young and talented Matilde Poggi last summer, and are excited to work with the 2016 vintage. There is so much to love in this pretty light peachy-pink rosé done in the Provençal style using the saignée method, which means the winemaker takes some of the juice from their red wine off the skins a little earlier, and ferments it separately. The short amount of time on the skins gives it a gorgeous pink color. Crisp and dry, and full of strawberries, which happen to grow wild in the vineyards, hence the estate’s name (Fraghe means wild strawberry in Italian). Amazing quality for the price!
