Product of Israel. Region: Galilee. Variety: Barbera, Merlot Alc/Vol 12.5% Kosher for Passover Mevushal: No. 70% Barbera, 30% Merlot. Vibrant aromas and flavors of strawberry, pomegranate and white flower essence build to an elegant finish. Enjoy well-chilled on its own or with appetizers, fish entrees and spicier fare.. Winemaking Notes: The Barbera grapes, which maintain their natural acidity, are destemmed and undergo light crushing. They are then sent straight to gentle pressing and cold fermentation. This is to preserve the wine’s fruity flavors, natural acidity and the refreshing Barbera aroma. The Merlot grapes, from the Manara Vineyard in the Upper Galilee, start off by macerating in stainless steel tanks. When Recanati’s winemakers reach the perfect color from macerating the grapes on their skins, they remove the required 20% juice from the tank. This process is called “bleeding.” The two species are then fermented together and not aged in barrels at all, because we want to preserve the light and refreshing Rosé flavors.
Tasting Notes: Recanati’s classic Rosé is a fruity wine, medium-bodied and refreshing, that maintains a fine balance between acidity and alcohol. The wine has abundant aromas of fresh strawberry, grapefruit and citrus blossoms
