Our Rosso exemplifies a traditional rustic Italian blend. Sagrantino the most tannic variety in the world is a grape in which View Road Wines is obsessed. In this Rosso, View Road Wines has produced an earlier drinking style of wine that pays respect to Sagrantino and the Umbrian region of Italy. While the Picked by my wife Rosso is a blend of 55% Sangiovese, 40% Merlot the 5% Sagrantino is still dominant on the palate. True to our ethos the grapes were wild fermented on skins for 5½ weeks before being pressed to used French oak. The Sangiovese and Merlot were co-fermented and blended with the Sagrantino before bottling.
