Ampeleia, Rosato di Ampeleia 2021Regular price $30.00 Save $-30.00
Variety: Carignano, Alicante Nero (Grenache)
Ampeleia was born only just in 2002 from the collaboration and friendship between noteworthy icons—Elisabetta Foradori, Thomas Widmann, and Giovanni Podini. They created a place where they could not only develop an agricultural project but also fulfill a common dream. The estate comprises different plots of land, each located far apart and on different altitude levels—their mission is to create variables in altitude, soil type and microclimatic conditions. Variety is the spice of life, at least Ampeleia, representing the project’s constant quality and willingness to discover. The grape varieties that have been planted are common to Mediterranean vineyards reflecting the tradition of growing multiple varieties in the same vineyard. Today, the estate extends over three altitude levels and covers 35 hectares of vineyard.
This is just the second vintage of this rose produced annually; only 5000 bottles are made! This combines the Alicante Nero (Grenache) and Carignan together in a lovely, fruity, yet tannic rose that’s lighter in alcohol.
Montenidoli, Toscana Canaiolo Rosato 2022Regular price $29.00 Save $-29.00
The estate is located just outside of the famed tower city of San Gimignano on the western border of the Chianti zone in Tuscany. The estate dates back to Roman times and there are stories of the Knights Templar using the property for meetings and ceremonies. Elisabetta and her husband bought the property in the ‘60’s and brought it back to life from its abandoned state. The couples’ profound respect for the land has always been the focus. Farming sustainably and respecting what nature gives them every vintage. Elisabetta's soul is caring and driven. She is a hard worker, and her mission is to leave this small place on earth better than the way she found it. She still travels the world pouring her wines telling stories.
The Canaiuolo rosato is named for the variety of the same name, noted for its importance of the wines in Chianti. Elisabetta held the rosé back to release it once it had an extra year to come together to her vision. She calls it a transgender, a balance of two identities. It has the gentleness of a white, but the strength of a red; the perfect wine.
