- Tasting Notes
Rosato Toscana IGT
At Querceto, they wholeheartedly believe great wine is made in the vineyard. It's the reason they focus on those grape varieties that best express the terroir of their region, like Sangiovese. It’s also why they apply organic farming techniques for managing their 28 acres of vines, and focus on producing wines of high quality without chemical treatment and as little disruption as possible to the natural surroundings. Sangiovese covers approximately 80% of the planted area, Merlot makes up the majority of the remaining planted area with Viognier and Roussanne vines taking up a small separate parcel (2,000 vines in total).
Light and bright, the subtle color of peach skin, Querceto’s Furtivo 2020, though ‘sneaky’ in its easy drinkability, has an innocence about it, the aromas have a jubilance that revives childhood memories of endless summers, perfectly ripe strawberries, cherry ices and iced tea packed with citrus and mint.The palate is light in body and dry, with invigorating and uplifting acidity. The flavors draw the drinkers thoughts towards dusk, late summer, autumnal fruit that heralds the winter, pink grapefruit, pomegranate and cranberry, refreshing and cleansing. Aged four months in stainless steel tanks. Drink with dishes rich in color and flavor, dressed with herbs and aromatic spices - beetroot and feta salads with cumin, asparagus with shavings of Parmigiano, salamis dotted with fennel seed and it will pair to perfection with burrata, basil and peaches.
