• Taste:fresh but well balanced in its acidic and alcoholic components, persistent with hints of peach and apple

Rosa di Tetto IGT Toscana Rosato

La Fattoria del Colle has been producing a rosé wine for the past twenty years.
Its original name was “Acqua di tetto”. When Donatella Cinelli Colombini took over the Fattoria del Colle, in 1998, the wine’s name was changed to “Rosa di tetto”, inspired by three very old climbing roses on the façade of the 16th century villa and the chapel.

• Grape variet: Sangiovese
• Colour: brilliant pink
• Aroma: ethereal, distinct, fragrant, very fine, floral, with net hints of green apple
• Taste: dry but soft, with a nice body, hints of berries such as bilberries and raspberries
