Cosimo Maria Masini - Matilde Toscana Rosato 2019 12.5% 750ml bottleItaly
Sangiovese & San Forte (indigenous grape varietal)
The harvest started around the end of August with the pre-selection of the best bunches of the Sangiovese and San Forte vines, while still having a nice level of acidity but already reflecting the mature varietal characteristics.
To maintain freshness and minerality, the hand-selected grape bunches are pressed immediately (after a maximum of 5hours pre-maceration) and fermented in style Blanc de Noir, temperature-controlled in steel tanks, with only their natural yeasts.
Thanks to natural sedimentation before and gentle racking after fermentation, the Rosé, after having matured on its fine yeast for 4 months, has clarified itself naturally and can be brought to the bottle without implemented clarification methods, to maintain its full flavor.
Of salmon rose color, Matilde presents a fruity nose of raspberry and violets. Fresh, fruity, and slightly tannic on the palate, it finishes off with a lingering minerality.
As an aperitif, or ideally paired with smoked ham, salami, paté, or shrimps. With some lightly fried finger food or light summer dishes or typical Tuscan antipasti based on cheese and salumi
Temperature: 9 – 11 degrees
