2015 Buoncristiani Rose, Napa Valley
On a slightly more technical note, our Rosato blend is comprised of Syrah & Malbec fruit sourced from vineyards in Oak Knoll and Coombsville areas of Napa Valley as well as Stagecoach Vineyard above Oakville. The components of this Rosé were fermented in 10% stainless steel and 90% neutral barrels. Primary fermentation was allowed to complete to dryness, while secondary fermentation was suppressed to preserve the crisp acidity and vibrant fruit. This 2015 Rosato was bottled after only 6 months of barrel aging in order to capture the essence of the Syrah & Malbec fruit profile of ripe raspberry, floral perfume, exotic spices, and black cherry, while ensuring proper timing for spring parties and summer BBQ’s.
We, the Buoncristiani brothers, take pride in performing all aspects of enology, viticulture, wine production, marketing, and package design in order to share with you a true expression of our winemaking passion. We hope you join us in embracing
