Alìe - 2017

VINTAGE

Denomination

Toscana IGT

Description

Alìe, a fabled sea nymph, a symbol of sensuality and beauty, inspired Alìe, an elegant rosé with a luminous pink hue and subtle ruby highlights. It is a stylish, beautifully-balanced blend of Syrah and Vermentino, varieties that express their finest qualities when grown near the sea. Scents of spring wildflowers, wild strawberries, and citrus peel combine with a tasty vein of earthy minerality, classic to this growing area, that supports a delicate structure and infuses a lengthy, complex finish. Alìe makes an enchanting apèritif wine as well as throughout a meal, enjoyed with close friends and family.

Vintage Report

The growing season distinguished itself for a relatively rain-free autumn, and a dry and mild winter, which led to an earlier budding than usual. The spring rains guaranteed excellent water reserves during the long a dry summer with temperatures consistently above 30°C, guaranteeing excellent and healthy grapes.

    Tasting Notes

    Alìe 2017 is a refined and elegant wine characterised by its pale rosé colour and subtle peach highlights. Intense, with immediate freshness and a bouquet of ripe, elegant fruit. In the mouth, the wine is enveloping and well-rounded with citrus notes of pink grapefruit mixed with Marasca cherries and white-flesh fruits that bequeath the wine with an aromatic and persistent finish.

    Serving suggestions

    Alìe partners beautifully with smoked fish, particularly salmon, as well as with prosciutto, lighter meats, poultry and fish. It is particularly recommended with well-spiced dishes and Asian cuisine.
