THE SEASON OF ROSÉ

Typically served chilled, rosés are the perfect wines for spring and summer. Its name comes from the rosy color the wine inherits during production, and both the color and taste come in many different varieties dependent on each wine’s maker and production method. With the refreshing quality of white, and the body and structure of red, this versatile wine complements a range of dishes. For a delightful aperitivo, pair a sparkling northern rosé with creamy cheeses, cured meats, or fritto misto (fried seafood). Rosés can also stand up well to main courses: serve a bold, southern rosé with roasted chicken, grilled pork, or stewed fish.

STRENGTH IN COLOR

Rosé's famous color palette varies according to the length of production and the amount of red grapes present. The length of fermentation, type of grapes used, and region of production all play a role creating the Rosé we love.

Rosé can be made with three different production methods, Maceration, Saignée, and Blending. Maceration is the The most common type of Rosé production method, in which red grapes macerate (rest and soften) naturally in their own juices for a period of time. This produces a Rosato with deeper flavor and richer color. Saignée meaning “to bleed”, is the method in which a portion of the red grape juice is “bled” off into a new vat during the first few hours of the winemaking process. Rosé is then made from this separated juice. Lastly, blending is the method in which red and white wine are mixed together. It only takes 5% or less of red wine to dye a white wine into Rosé.

ROSATO ORIGINALE

In Italy, Rosato has been made for more than 75 years: in fact, the first commercial Rosato is attributed to a blend of Susumaniello and Negroamaro grapes from Puglia. Like all Italian food and drink, the style of rosé hinges on the region: northeastern Veneto is known for sweeter, more delicate rosés, while southwestern Calabria produces drier, more full-bodied rosés.
Join us at Il Bar in Piazza for the perfect aperitivo Rosato or before dining in any of our full-service  restaurants. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis; Il Bar in Piazza does not accept reservations.
