Terroir: The Santi Infinito Rosé is sourced from vineyards in the DOC of Bardolino just east of Lake Garda.
Vinification: Grapes are picked in the middle of September are vinified by the rosé wine method, with a short contact between the skins and the must, to achieve the right depth of color; the alcoholic fermentation takes place very slowly at a controlled temperature and with selected yeasts. A small part of the wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation. The new wine develops in steel, in the cold and always well protected from the processes of oxidation.
The wine has bright aromatic notes of ripe strawberries, wild cherries and blackcurrants. This fresh, fruity and well balanced Rosè makes a delicious companion to white meats, seafood, salads and pasta dishes.
The 2010 Infinito has bright aromatic notes of ripe strawberries and wild cherries. Fresh, fruity and well-balanced with a firm, focused finish.
"Salmon colored, the blend is 65 percent corvina, 30 percent rondinella and five percent molinara. It was an instant hit with its cherry and strawberry flavors accented by some herbal notes and a touch of lime rind. Fruity and refreshing, it was great for casual drinking with alcohol at just 11.5 percent."
"Best wine I've tasted from Italy's Bardolino region in a while. Not dazzling, but pleasant all around, from the pink color to the fruity nose to the flavor, described by one taster as "classic blush." Simple, but very good for the price."

"Bright, orange-tinged pink. Pungent aromas of raspberry, redcurrant and rhubarb, plus a hint of dried rose. Supple and broad on the palate, displaying sappy red fruit flavors and a touch of back-end warmth. The smooth, clinging finish leaves a gently sweet berry note behind. This could handle richer foods"
