"Rosato Pietraserena" - Toscana Igt Rosato

Years ago Canaiolo grapes were used to make Chianti. The Chianti thus obtained was aromatic, light and very agreeable when young. Later we decided to giveit more body so we stopped adding Canaiolo
and white grapes. However, since Canaiolo grapes had been cultivated in the area for a long time, it seemed historically appropriate to gain a rose’ from those grapes. We started to produce this Rose' which is 70% Canaiolo and 30% an early draining off of Sangiovese. It has been successful above our expectations.
