2013 LaStellina Rosato
We celebrate the fact that we make wine in a region where vintage variations play an important role. Atypical growing seasons are a nightmare for commercial wineries interested in making consistent but boring wines. For us however it defines our interest in wine. We look forward to seeing what Mother Nature gives us to work with each year. It is the effects of each vintage on the finished wine that urges us to start verticals of our favorite wines then follow their evolution and discuss their merits at tastings with friends.
LaStellina is a Rosato with personality and elegance. It is slightly off-dry and intensely aromatic. This style of Rosato will complement any hot summer day on the patio.The cabernet franc adds some beautiful spice and herbal notes while Merlot provides a melange of red and dark fruit notes.
The slightly off dry and highly aromatic qualities of this wine complement dishes that carry spice or piquant flavours. Hearty Indian or Thai curries would be a great choice! This wine will also work beautifully with strong aged cheeses.
Vegetariano / Vegano
A variety of vegetarian Indian and Thai dishes will work incredibly. Pairing this with lentil & bean chilli on a brisk fall day can work wonders.
This Italian inspired Rosato, made from a blend of cabernet franc and merlot, is Queen Anne cherry in colour with medium-light intensity. Red fruit and berries – cherries, raspberries and wild strawberries on the nose. Well balanced with good mouthfeel. The flavours follow the nose with a medium mineral finish. A very good patio wine or serve with salmon or paella.
