Roscato is an irresistible, delicately sweet, gently fizzy red wine from the northern Italian region of Lombardy. Made from three native grape varieties grown in this beautiful region for centuries - Croatina, Teroldego and Lagrein - Roscato makes a wonderful aperitif and is also incredibly food-friendly. Roscato seamlessly combines a long-held grape growing tradition with the flair of modern winemaking techniques and style. The result is a wine of enticing character that perfectly meets the surging demand for sweet red blends. With a low alcohol of 7% and just a touch of sparkle to flawlessly balance the sweetness, Roscato is the ideal complement for today's cuisine. Enjoy it with tomato-based sauces, classic Italian dishes, spicy foods and more.
|Wine maker notes
|Each variety is harvested and vinified separately, allowing the grapes to reach perfect ripeness. Following de-stemming, the juice is kept on the skins for several days at low temperatures to extract the fruit’s aromas and color. When the wine reaches 5% ABV, fermentation is halted by refrigeration and the wine is blended. A natural second fermentation in tank creates a delicate “frizzante” (sparkle) in the wine. The second fermentation is halted when the wine reaches 7% ABV maintaining an ideal touch of natural residual sugar.
|Highly versatile. A great aperitif and equally splendid with tomato-based sauces, classic Italian dishes and spicy foods. Enjoy chilled.
Please drink responsibly.
|As a fourth generation vintner and artist, I have both wine and paint running through my veins. In the studio I strive to express the gestalt of the wines on canvas and show the unique characteristics of the grapes grown in a particular vineyard. Since my husband David and I established Darcie Kent Vineyards in Livermore’s Crane Ridge foothills in 1996, we’ve focused on hand-crafting limited production, single vineyard wines using our own estate-grown fruit as well as grapes from several highly respected regional family vineyards. The end result is a line-up of outstanding wines that are vibrant, original and expressive – this is the inspiration for the artwork that adorns each bottle. Enjoy.
