2018 Aglianico Rosé
Heringer Vineyard, Clarksburg, Sacramento County, CA
Ryme Wine Cellars
What we love
Ryme Cellars is one of the most exciting producers in California focusing on Italian varietals. The 2018 Aglianico Rosé is a dry, refreshing glass of summer wine, showing notes of tiny red strawberries and fresh grapefruit. Heringer Vineyard has been meticulously managed and farmed sustainably by the same family for three generations. Serve well chilled and pair with all things grilled.
About this Wine
With its striking acidity, powerful fruit and firm tannins, Aglianico can make a beautiful, aromatic yet serious rosé in the right site. Heringer Vineyard is located in Clarksburg AVA. With the rich alluvial soil, the modestly warm days, and the cool breezes winding through the nearby Sacramento Delta, the Aglianico struggles here to accumulate much sugar. Rather than dark and brooding, the fruit retains more delicacy and brightness.
