Mazzei Belguardo Rose Toscana IGT

2019

In a Nutshell

Excellent quality dry Rose from Tuscan powerhouse Mazzei.

Tasting Notes

An attractive pale pink in the glass, with notes of juicy strawberry and cranberry and flowery hints of cherry blossom and rose petals. On the palate the wine is poised with fantastic freshness while the lees ageing adds to the mouthfeel and elevates the succulent red fruit flavours.

Production Notes

50% of the grapes are left on their skins for up to 12 hours during maceration and fermented at 15°C. The wine then spends 3 months on its lees in stainless steel tanks before bottling in February 2020.

Producer - Belguardo

Tenuta Belguardo was purchased in the 1990s after the Mazzei family identified the potential for producing quality wines on the estate. In line with their philosophy for innovation, the family implemented an intense re-planting program, carefully selecting grape varieties and clones. In addition to the introduction of international varieties, the family have invested in a research and development project based on an ancient local strain of Sangiovese, found in the oldest vineyards of Scansano, to ensure the best clones are used for production.
