More information

The Merlot Rosato by Tenuta Ulisse is the rosé bestseller of top wines in Abruzzo. It comes into the glass with strong raspberry red and inspires not only the rosé friend, but every wine lover who likes powerful and expressive wines. First of all, fruity notes of ripe raspberries, cranberries, strawberries and cherries penetrate the nose. The fruit is complemented by floral notes, fine herbal spices and light citric nuances of pink grapefruit, kumquat and bergamot. Floral notes of hibiscus and bush rose complete the bouquet brilliantly.

On the palate, the Ulisse Merlot Rosato starts with an animating, fruity prelude. Delightfully grippy, juicy and with vital acidity, this Italian rosé glides over the tongue. A feast for the senses. No wonder, then, that critic legend Luca Maroni made this wine from Ulisse part of his highest rating for the second time.

Vinification of the Merlot Rosato by Tenuta Ulisse

This lace pink car was vinified from 100% Merlot grapes grown around Crecchio in the Abruzzo province of Chieti. The vines here are rooted in sandy soils and have been able to dig their roots deep into the underground for 10-20 years. The sandy soil does not allow the vines too much water, which strengthens the depth and extent of the roots and makes the grapes grow particularly intensively, because not so diluted. After the hand-picking, the grapes immediately come into the cellar, are mashed and cold-macerated for 12 hours. After pressing the must, the fermentation takes place, which is followed by a three-month maturation period in the stainless steel tank.

Anspruchsvoller Rosé

Fruchtbetont (v.a. Himbeere), alkoholischer als einfachere Rosés, kein Rosé zum Durstlöschen
