Terroir: The Castello Monaci Kreos Rosato comes from the heart of Italy's rosé production region of Apulia. The vineyards of this hot, arid region are made up of dry gravelly soils of limestone and clay forcing the vines deep for nourishment and leading to very low yields and concentrated wines.
Vinification: This 100% Negroamarois made in the "saignée method" which removes the juice from the skins after just a enough contact to impart a rich pink color and clean berry flavor. 45,000 bottles produced.
This delicious rosé is dry and elegant with bright fruit and floral notes on the nose and palate.
The 2014 Kreos is pale pink in color and made in an elegant style. The bouquet is intense with fruit and spice flavors (rose, strawberry, blueberry and pepper with a good acidity). The wine is very well balanced.

"Bright pink. Rich aromas and flavors of red cherry, plum, anise and sweet spices. Supple, dense and suave, displaying good lift and inner-mouth perfume. Finishes with outstanding texture and length. This big, complex, savory rosato should be very versatile at the dinner table."
