This wine is WILD! Wild strawberries, wild roses and a wildly long finish. We like the sound of “soft, supportive tanins” too…now we all need some of those in our lives, don’t we?

More About This Wine

Delicate blush pink, as we like it. Rodòn boasts a complex mosaic of well-defined, fragrant aromas. Seductive notes of wild rose are the first to emerge, followed by nuances of wild strawberry, redcurrant and blackcurrant leaf. The palate displays crunchy red fruits and a perfect balance between ultra-savoury flavours and a tasty minerality. It is medium in body, with soft supporting tannins and lively acidity. The finish is notably lengthy, and nicely mirrors the aromas offered by the nose. A very gourmet wine for sunny days, to accompany antipasti, light and delicately-flavoured meats, rare roast lamb as well as a wide range of fish soups, eggs, and young cheeses.

Hows it's made

The two grape varieties, Corvina and Rondinella, are vinified separately. In a cool temperature the grapes enjoy a six to eight hour maceration on the skins, which extracts just enough colour to give a lively, medium-bodied structure to the juice. The must then ferments at a cool 17°C. The finished wine matures on the fine lees in 50hl stainless steel tanks until the following spring, when it is bottled.
