The 2010 growing season was challenging with cool weather and record rainfall during spring and late summer. Fortunately a sunny October allowed harvest to take place under excellent conditions. Low yielding vineyards from the time of bud break were essential to achieve perfect physiological ripeness. Ongoing vineyard management and rigorous sorting were the key words in the vineyard and winery. The result is vibrant and elegant wines. Whites and roses are particularly aromatic with focused, pure flavours. Reds are lower in alcohol with higher acidity levels and ripe, structured tannins.
LaStellina is a Rosato with personality and elegance. Off dry and aromatic. This style of Rosato will complement any hot summer day on the patio.
The off-dry and low alcohol qualities of this wine complements dishes that sport spice or piquant flavours. Thai and Indian dishes would be a great choice! This wine will also work beautifully with strong cheeses – be sure to search out some local favorites.
