Oro Rosso

Oro Rosso Rosè

OROROSSO comes from the expression used in the Cembra Valley to refer to the porphyry of volcanic origin present on the valley slopes. OROROSSO Rosé is a classic-method sparkling wine obtained from the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes grown in the better-exposed hill vineyards of the Cembra Valley, where they express themselves to the full. The high altitude, the favourable exposure to the sun and the wide temperature range between day and night typical of the area favour the development of the acidity characteristic of these areas and of the best mountain bubbles.

  • TASTING NOTES

    In the glass it shows off a bright antique pink colour and a perlage of extreme finesse and persistence. To the nose, flavours of blackberry, raspberry and blueberry and a hint of cherry. The palate is rich in ripe fruit and extreme elegance, with a flavour that envelops the acidity and fruit in a long aromatic persistence

  • PRODUCTION AREA

    Cembra Valley

  • VARIETY

    Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

  • VINEYARDS

    The vineyards on the slopes are supported by dry stone walls formed of porphyritic rocks. The gradient can be steep, often limiting the width of the terraces so as to prevent mechanisation. The Chardonnay grapes are grown on light soils, sandy, shallow, poor in carbonates, sometimes sub-acidic with often excessive drainage; the Pinot Noir grapes prefer heavier soils, sandy and loamy, medium rich in organic matter and carbonates, fertile

  • VINIFICATION

    The Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes are harvested separately. Chardonnay undergoes traditional vinification with whole grape pressing. The Pinot Noir, on the other hand, undergoes a slight cryomaceration in the press to allow the sparkling base to become enriched with that natural colour that will give the cuvée its characteristic pinkish reflections. The cuvée is made in spring. After drawing, which takes place before summer, the sparkling wine ages sur lattes for about 48 months. It then takes 3 months to refine after disgorgement before being placed on the market
