On the market a month, It's up to Stefano Capelli (Ca production manager’ del Bosco) introduce the new flagship cuvee vintage in pink version, born with the harvest 2003, the Annamaria Clementi 2005.
The vintage is, climatically, identical to that 2012: mild winter, cold spring, rain until may. Then, blooming with warm, with the screw ever subjected to water stress. Ca’ del Bosco is Rosé from when she was born, or by 1976. The vintage Rosé wine cellar has become historic Anna Maria Clementi from three vineyards average age old 28 years of pinot noir grown with a density of 10.000 vines per hectare. The art of Assembly, then, does the rest: a short maceration to 14 degrees will be helpful in getting that particular pink color that intense aromatic profile of extreme finesse and harmony. All the different stages of vinification of three base wines take place in small oak skins. The second fermentation to very low temperature lasts about three months.
Alcoholic fermentation, Malolactic fermentation and ageing last, throughout. 7 years.
To serve the new vintage (the former was the 2004), the best sommelier in Italy 2010 Ballard. This Rosé de noir highlights the character of Pinot Noir, with a slight spice and aromas of Strawberry and plum. A very balanced wine (is an extra brut), I also really fascinates the color, by seducing and coppery Orange and marked, reminiscent of the midsummer sunsets, but also the lively crispness of a coma and all shining pepper a young headstrong character. But be careful. This is a Rosé that goes not to compromise and not a nod to forms “soft” that could squeeze the eye at that women to whom the rosés are always – but incorrectly – attributed.
Combinations? With you flights, important seasonings, dishes with a dash of mustard… I personally would well with Tortoise shell and Chianina beef tartare.
The market will be among the 120 and the 130 euro. Circulation is about 5.000 bottles.
