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.
"Delicate aromas of fresh cherry, strawberry, summer herbs and citrus zest. Fresh on the palate, with summer berries and hints of melon and minerals. Refreshing finish. Good al fresco summer wine. Tomato and buffalo mozzarella salad."
As seen in the July issue of La Cucina Italiana
"loaded with an essence of strawberry and cherry fruit, and balanced with a kiss of acidity in the finish that makes this wine utterly gulpable on its own."

"A tight little nose with notes of cherry blossoms, a touch of mineral water and some zingy raspberry nuances. In the mouth this is fairly fruit with plenty of refreshing acidity. It probably has a touch of RS supporting the vivid, orange-laced strawberry fruit, but all this acidity keeps the wine fresh and balanced. Cherries pop on the finish with a hint of herbal stem and some lime gummy bear fruitiness. A touch too fruity for some, but this is a zesty, fun loving ros."
"Ros's accent many dishes, from grilled pork to roast turkey. Try the bright, fruity, 2011 Santi Infinito."
