2015 Fattoria di Magliano Illario Rosato della Maremma Toscana,
Illario is an expressive rosé produced from Tuscany’s signature varietal, Sangiovese, named in honor of the proprietor’s father whose middle name was Illario. A well-structured wine through the engaging finish layered with aromas of sweet red cherries and tart raspberries and notes of violets and herbs. It is fresh with bright acidity making it an ideal food wine. Following fermentation in stainless steel, this wine was aged for 3 months on the fine lees prior to bottling adding depth. Made from 100% certified organic Sangiovese grapes.
