Mattia Ardenghi and Lorenzo Bormioli are known for their spectacular Prosecco made in the Conegliano appellation of the Veneto, one of Italy's finest wine producing areas. Their attention to their vineyards is legendary as they walk through every row of vines inspecting every cluster of grapes to ensure that each is as perfect as can be.

Their completely organic vineyard uses only bio-diesel tractors. Solar powered and geothermal water systems run the production facilities. Their entire operation leaves almost no carbon footprint. So, when they decided to become one of the Veneto's first Rose producers with the same passion and commitment, the world took notice. The grapes here are a blend of Veneto's most prodigious varieties used in Valpolicella: Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella. These varieties are too precious to normally be used in a Rose, but Ardenghi and Bormioli were not about to make just any Rose.

This selection stands alone in the small world of Italian Rose. It boasts an inner core of complex flavors and essences seldom found in blush wines. The slightly darker than most color is a hint of the size and scope of the wine. The aromas are a sign that this is not your typical Rose. Rainer cherry blossom and wild strawberry angle with swashes of peach, guava and rose petals. Its stunning array is even more impressive once it descends on the palate, offering similar excitement but also adding layers of citrus and pear blossom. A universal wine that would sing with sushi, an albacore salad or tomato basil soup.
