Mastroberardino Lacrimarosa Irpinia Rosato

Mastroberardino Lacrimarosa Irpinia Rosato 2017

ItalyThis very pale, very elegant rosé is from 15 year old aglianico vines in Lapìo, on clay and limestone soils around 400m altitude. Lacrimarosa translates as pink tear, referencing the slight hue of this gently pressed pink. A stainless ferment and short three month stint on lees keeps this fresher and more delicate than its warm Campania provenance might suggest. Very silken and salty, with crushed currants, wild raspberries, spicy peonies on the slender palate. Has the body and elegance to suit salmon tartare. The family owned Mastroberadino estate was founded in 1878.Tasted: 23 February 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.00 private wine shops Producer: MastroberardinoDistributors: Stile Brands
