Cassiopea revives the tradition of great rosés from this area, which are well-known for their extraordinary savoury hints and freshness. It has the colour and intensity of Bolgheri’s summer sunsets and bears the name of the constellation that lights up the skies above the estate of Poggio al Tesoro.

The special feature of the rosé vinification is the very brief contact between the skins and the must. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in steel at low temperatures, followed by ageing on the lees with bâtonnage for 5 months and one month in the bottle. 

Pale pink in colour, on the nose it proffers hints of flowers and small berries such as blackberry and raspberry. The palate is fresh with satisfying savouriness and succulence, and a long, lingering finish. 

Ideal as an aperitif, with bruschetta, fried fish or vegetable tempura, it also pairs perfectly with soups, grilled white meat, and fish dishes. Enthusiasts also advise pairing it with creamy cheeses such as robiola, salted ricotta and mozzarella. Serve at 8-10 °C and open just before serving.
