Alta Langa DOCG Rachele Rosé Vendemmia 2018
A Metodo Classico Rosé dedicated to a special woman.
Obtained from Pinot Noir grapes of the superlative Harvest 2018, this Metodo Classico Rosé produces fresh and elegant bubbles, characterized by unique finesse and complexity.
This Alta Langa “rosé de saignée”, with a delicate natural pink color, given by the light maceration of Pinot Noir, is a tribute to Rachele Bosca, a woman who, with her enlightened vision, gave life to the reality that still today is Tosti1820.
