The Merlot Rosato from Tenuta Ulisse is the bestseller rosé of the top winery in Abruzzo. It comes with strong raspberry red in the glass and inspires not only the Rosé friend, but every wine lover who likes powerful and expressive wines. First of all, fruity notes of ripe raspberries, cranberries, strawberries and cherries penetrate the nose. The fruit is complemented by floral notes, fine herbal spices and light citric nuances of pink grapefruit, kumquat and bergamot. Flowery notes of hibiscus and bushrose round off the bouquet brilliantly.
The Ulisse Merlot Rosato starts on the palate with an animating, fruity attack. This Italian rosé glides over the tongue with a wonderful grip, juicy and vital acidity. A feast for the senses. No wonder, then, that critic legend Luca Maroni gave this Ulisse wine its highest rating for the second time.
Vinification of Merlot Rosato fromTenuta Ulisse
This top rosato is made from 100% Merlot grapes grown around Crecchio in the Abruzzo province of Chieti. The vines here have their roots in sandy soils and have been able to dig their roots deep underground for 10-20 years. The sandy soil does not allow the vines too much water, which increases the depth and extent of the roots and makes the grapes grow particularly intensively because they are not so watered down. After manual harvesting, the grapes are immediately transferred to the cellar, crushed and cold macerated for 12 hours. After pressing the must, fermentation takes place, followed by a three-month maturing period in stainless steel tanks.
