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. Serve chilled.
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.
