This Rosato comes from Cantine Intesa, a member of a large group of fruit, vegetable and grape growers. This cooperative, Agrintesa, is located in an important agricultural area in the eastern part of Emilia-Romagna.
Antonio Bottinelli created the sculpture on the label. It is called "Le Prime Rose" evoking a girl in her first bloom of youth, and accented her dress with a ring of roses. Our wine is a rose from the eastern part of Italy which we feel is as sweet as the girl herself.
Tasting Notes: The color is an elegant, deep pink, and the taste is that of strawberries and cherries; fruity and delightfully sweet.. Drink it chilled with a creamy cheese accompanied with fresh ripe fruit.
