Alie Rosé Frescobaldi Gift box with two glasses
An elegant Rosé with a light colour and subtle ruby reflections, a fine balance between Syrah and Vermentino. The winter of 2021/2022 was characterised by good rainfall, as was the spring of 2022. This situation generated a proper water supply in the subsoil. Sprouting took place a few days later than normal, but rising temperatures led to regular vegetative development. Summer days with above-average temperatures led to splendid ripening of the Syrah and Vermentino grapes. As a result, the aromatic development was magnificent. The sun and the refreshing sea breezes were the perfect companions during the harvest period; both allowed the vines to achieve a compositional balance that is an expression of this microclimate. The most genuinely Mediterranean expression of Tuscany.
Alìe 2022 has a splendid soft pink colour. On the nose, its fruitiness is particularly varied: citrus notes of citron and bergamot, ripe peach and white fruits. This is followed by the floral soul of Alìe dominated by iris, orange blossom and peony. The long bouquet continues with clear hints of iodine and aromatic herbs such as thyme, rosemary and sage. The taste-olfactory correspondence is remarkable and precise, characterised by freshness and savouriness. Alìe is a rich, silky, smooth and satisfying wine.
Alìe, a figure from Greek mythology, one of the sea nymphs, symbol of sensuality and beauty. Alìe, an elegant Rosé with a clear, pure colour and soft ruby reflections. A refined balance between Syrah and Vermentino, which find their maximum expression in their proximity to the sea. Aromas of white flowers, wild strawberries and citrus peel blend in a delicate structure with hints of minerality typical of the terroir, giving a long, rich finish. Enchanting from aperitif to meals and in good company.
Vinification and Ageing
The secret of Alìe lies in the combination of territorial characteristics, vineyard management and, of course, the human factor. The grapes, once harvested, were transported to the cellar in a short time in order not to spoil or damage the bunches. One of the highlights of the Alìe production was the pressing phase. The bunches, whole and in the absence of oxygen, were loaded into the press. The pressures applied during this phase were extremely soft and gentle; this process, together with the careful selection of the musts and their subsequent decanting for no less than 12 hours, made it possible to eliminate any less elegant vegetable components. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of less than 20° C. After maturing for a few months on fine lees, subsequently including a period in the bottle, Alìe 2019 was ready to seduce and captivate, making every sip passionate.
