Cara Mia Rosato

Cara Mia Rosato Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: Our first rose type wine, the Cara Mia Rosato is made from Sangiovese and other red varieties vinified as for a white wine. Cara Mia has a miniscule amount of residual sugar ( approx. 0.5%) which for many will still leave a dry impression on the palate. Compares favorably with Provence rose wines.

Varietal Definition
Sanguis Jovis, the Latin origin for the varietal name, literally means “blood of Jove.” Sangiovese is one of the oldest known varietals and it is likely that ancient Etruscan winemakers cultivated it, although the first literary reference to Sangiovese was in 1722. Sangiovese is probably indigenous to Tuscany, whose most famous wine is Chianti. Chianti is a blend that currently contains a minimum of 90% Sangiovese.Sangiovese thrives in hot dry climates. Because these climatic criteria generally enhance quantity, rather than quality, it takes careful cultivation and winemaking techniques to produce really excellent wine from this grape.
