Malvasia Rosa Frizzante 2016
Our coup de coeur this summer, Camillo Donati’s Malvasia Rosa is simply sensational. But don’t jump into this adventurous natural fizz expecting a delicate Champagne-like rosé…
Bubbling with dark cherry flavours, meaty notes, Pinot Noir nuances, clove, wildflowers, stewed and spiced plums and rustic earthiness, it’s rich, unique and bouncy. Serve it chilled down alongside barbeques, charcuterie, pizza, gnocchi, sausages with mash or in a casserole, roasts, tomato-based sauces, or spicy nibbles as an aperitif. Those who love a tangy negroni will get a real kick out of this.
When Camillo Donati’s mother Rosa passed away, he decided to make a wine in her honour. Although it is a pink sparkling, the Rosa in the name is a dedication to his mum. It’s made as you would a Lambrusco using organic and biodynamic farmed Malvasia and 5% of a mystery red for colour, which changes depending on what Camillo fancies putting in that vintage. Bottled unfined and unfiltered under a crown cap, it’s a phenomenal eye-opener; much more a food wine than a conventional fizz for celebrations.
