A soft crushing and pressing make it possible to extract and select a slightly rosé must that is clarified until the required level of limpidity is btained. This is followed by alcoholic fermentation at a 14ºC-16ºC.
Following fermentation, a maturation of about 2 months enables this wine to reach the required quality for bottling, an operation preceded by fining, cold stabilization, sterilizing and filtration. It should be drunk young, preferably in the year following the harvest.
The bottle should be kept in a dry and cool place, sheltered from light.
Serve between 8°C-10°C.
Terra Franca Rosé is ideal with light dishes such as sea-food, fish, grilled white meats and salads. It may also be enjoyed on its own or as a refreshing aperitif.
