Description

Vurria Nerello Mascalese Rosato was first made in 2004 in the family cellar. Brothers Gunther and Klaus Di Giovanna were among the first in Sicily to pioneer high-quality rosé.
Vurria Rosato is made from 100% Nerello Mascalese, which comes from 30 year old vines grown on tufaceous soil in Contessa Entellina. The wine takes its name from a Sicilian poem Vurria, meaning to wish for. The Nerello Mascalese grapes, harvested by hand, are soft pressed for about 3 hours and fermentation follows in steel containers. Aging lasts about 6 months in steel tanks. Vurria Rosato is pale pink with orange hues. The aromas that envelop the nose are expressive with citrus and pomegranate notes, sensations of aromatic herbs and marine nuances. On the palate it is fresh, harmonious, with excellent persistence and a savory finish.

Aroma Citrus fruits, wild strawberries, aromatic herbs and mineral notes
