Summer is closer and there are always events dedicated to Rosé in this period.
“Why only in this period?”
Last week I participated to a very interesting tasting, between French rosé and Apulian rosé. Yes, we have played in the home court.
I don’t want to talk about the wines and the poetic descriptions but I want to talk about some reflections made with the speakers and professors.
I never thought about this, but historically rosé wines have always been produced near the coasts. Why? Because the wines are served to pair the typical cuisine, and the typical cuisine of the coasts is quite light, like rosé wines.
There are regions more suitable to make rosé than others. Why? It depends by the grapes and by traditions.
The grapes to make rosé are very important. Very Very important! I learnt that one of the most suitable grape to make rosé is Bombino Nero, because of its quantity of acids and sugars. Acids are important to give freshness and make the wine easy to drink, one of the most important rosé features. Bombino nero is the most important grape to obtain CASTEL DEL MONTE BOMBINO NERO DOCG, in Puglia.
“Why we don’t make rosé only with the more suitable red grapes?”
The market is calling. Rosé trend is increasing. Wineries have to satisfy the requests. It’s the economy. Pink Appeal. 50 rosé shades.
“Yes, but what are the main differences between French Rosé and Apulian Rosé?”
