Le Fornaci Rosé 2020
92 points, “The first vintage of Le Fornaci Rosé, from Tommasi’s estate in Lugana on the shores of Lake Garda. It has a fragrant, breezy aroma of wild scrub and fresh red berries, followed in the mouth by saline, minerally acidity and focused, elegant red fruits. Juicy, slightly herbal and very fresh and minerally, this is a sublime rosé to enjoy with or without food, and a great first vintage for the Tommasi team.”
This bottle presents the unique opportunity to taste a first. Never produced before, this is Tommasi’s first vintage of Le Fornaci Rosé.
It’s an intense and elegant rosé from the shore of Lake Garda. Le Fornaci is a wine we love to sip as spring and summer arrive, because it just feels like holidays and brighter days.
Over four generations and well over a century, the glamorous Tommasi estate has earned a reputation that has elevated them to become one of the ambassadors for Amarone and Valpolicella. Although famed for their big reds, Le Fornaci Rosé is set to become another classic. It’s crafted from Turbiana (from the Le Fornaci vineyard) and Rondinella (from Peschiera del Garda) grapes from two very different vineyards, which gives it a harmonious balance. Crisp, refreshing and summery, this beautiful rosé tastes like pink grapefruit, red berry sorbet, peach blossom, orange zest, beach pebbles, dried herbs and a breeze off Lake Garda. Move over Provence, we have a new favourite holiday rosé destination.
