This will be your Sparkling Rosé of the summer of 2020!

This past January, it was my mission to explore the wine regions of Emilia-Romagna. Very few people talk about the wines of the region, but I knew that good wine existed. 

One of the biggest surprises of my trip was the excellent sparkling wines being produced in Romagna. Sure, everyone knows Lambrusco from Emilia, but I had no idea that so many great, and often times affordable sparkling wines were being produced from the Sangiovese grape varietal.

My trip took me to what is now one of my all-time favorite producers. When I say Tenuta Casali is a family affair, I mean it. As I showed up for appointment, I met Silvia Casali. Then I met Francesco. Then Daniele. Then their fathers, brothers Valerio and Paolo. I was surrounded by the whole family who was excited to show me the winery that their father/grandfather Mario has built  in Mercato Saraceno in Romagna. 

When I tell you that every wine at Tenuta Casali is authentic and most importantly delicious, I mean it. We will explore many more of these wines on the newsletters in the future, but I couldn't wait to introduce you to the Villa Zappi Rosato Rubicone.

A Rosé Sparkling wine, made entirely from Sangiovese from their Palazzina vineyard. Softly pressed, with a few hours of maceration, it is produced in the Charmat method. The wine is aged for 8 months in tank, with several battonage before it is bottled. 

Incredibly fresh, with notes of creamed strawberry and rhubarb. This is round, with soft bubbles, pure fruit and a long, dry finish.
