Production of rosé wines in Bolgheri goes back to ancient times. Starting with Cassiopea, rosé production at Poggio al Tesoro is now extended with Pagus Cerbaia, a small but precious parcel of land with sedimentary soils. Here, our special selection of red grapes, such as Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, are partly fermented in amphorae and partly in oak casks. The wine offers a delicate aroma and a lively, crisp, and joyful palate, yielding exactly what we were looking for: a persistent spicy note and a naturally rounded mouthfeel. 

This rosé vinification, which involves a short ‘free-run juice’ contact with the skins, is characterized by fermentation in terracotta amphorae and in oak barrels. Only after ageing for 6 months on its own lees is the wine combined to create Pagus Cerbaia. It continues ageing in the bottle for at least 4 months. 

Pink nuances reminiscent of spring blossom and fresh scents of flowers interlaced with sweet-sour woodland berries. The succulent palate is impactful and soothing. 

In the case of meat, Cassiopea Pagus Cerbaia enhances the flavour of white meats like chicken with peppers, stewed rabbit with tomatoes and onions, and white ragout with homemade noodles. In the case of fish, it pairs perfectly with whole sea bass baked in salt with Mediterranean side vegetables, and baked John Dory served on a bed of black olives. Lastly, in the case of cheese, it is excellent with fresh goats cheese accompanied by fig chutney. Serve at 8-10°C and uncork just before drinking.
