NOBLE KARA – Sangiovese rosè
Today, I’m very proud to introduce you another my new challenge: Noble Kara rosé.
As Bulgarelli, the red wine I’ve already told you, also Noble Kara is thought for young amateurs.
One of the secret of Nobel Kara is to be light and fresh even if it comes from Sangiovese vines of 15 years.
Well, to obtain freshness, I have to harvest grapes by hand and put all the picked in small crates, during the end of August and beginning of September, so very early than classic harvests. After that, the maceration is made on skins for 8 hours, the alcoholic fermentation happens in steel and, at the end, Noble Kara is ready to rest and aging in steel for 6 months. Due to the fact that I totally love natural wines, this wine is unfiltered and unclarified.
Easy to drink, thanks to its exceptional acidity and minerality, I suggest to enjoy this aromatic rosé during an “aperitivo” with friends, eating whatever you want.
Ficomontanino is located in Chiusi, in Southern Tuscany and extends over 50 hectares, of which 11 are planted with vines. The estate was founded by Ruggero Giannelli in 1970 who initially established it as a stud breeding racehorses. In the 80’s Ruggero discovered the most appropriate place to plant vines and started producing wines, and since 2010 his son Alessandro leads the company, flanked by his passionate daughter Maria Sole who is increasingly more involved in the production philosophy and every day operations.
In the vineyards, that they manage according to the organic method, they use cover crops, no weeding nor manuring and carry out only preventive treatments with sulfur and copper. All vineyard jobs are done by hand: pruning, tying, removing non-fruit-bearing buds, and of course, harvest – to ensure the best possible quality of grape selection.
In the winery as well the approach is natural and artisanal, with spontaneous fermentations, long ageing on the lees, no fining nor filtration and low levels of sulfur. The wines have a unique sense of place, are extremely enjoyable and fun to drink.
