Igt Toscana Rosè
Chiù Rosè gets its name from the nocturnal birdsong of the Chiurlo, a typical bird from Maremma. During the Spring nights you will hear his call – Chiù – coming from the pine trees in front of the cellar. In this period Chiù is bottled. Chiù is made with 100% Sangiovese grapes, picked slightly earlier. The grapes are picked by hand and carefully selected directly in the vineyards. The grapes arrive in the cellar, transported in small cases, where they are pressed entirely with the stalk.
The vinification occurs around 15 degrees with a prolonged fermentation with own indigenous yeast-20/25 days- in stainless steel vats only.
After some decanting, Chiù is bottled in early March. The yearly production is very limited, around 3000 bottles.
The color of the Chiù is pale pink, onion skin. At the nose, it shows fresh aromas of strawberries and cherries, with hints of violets and cyclamens.
Pleasant to drink, fresh and delicate, Chiù pairs well with light appetizers, pasta, poultry, savory tarts and salads. It’s perfect just as an aperitif or to accompany a light meal.
