Rosé wine is a fresh and light wine made from red grapes or a combination of red and white varieties, which undergoes a relatively short maceration process of the skins with the must, before pressing and subsequent fermentation. Discover the best selection of Rosé Wines.
Rosé wine is a fresh and light wine made from red grapes. High-level rosés are obtained by the bleeding method, a process in which once the grapes are cleaned of the grape shoots, they are pressed and then kept macerated with their skin for just a few hours. Enough time to add a rosy color to the wine, which is sometimes more intense and other times with more salmon tones or even soft pastel tones. The longer the rosé wine is with the puree, the darker the color. The color spectrum of rosé wine ranges from golden yellow and soft pink to apricot and salmon to cherry red or a bright ruby red. Due to the short maceration time, only a few tannins enter the wine, so it tastes fresh and lively and is more reminiscent of white wine than red wine.
Rosé wines go very well with pastas, salads and vegetables, stews, grilled dishes and pizza, with exotic fruits and cheeses, but also with fish, seafood, rice and white meats. Rosé wine is best served as white wine, between 6 and 10 degrees Celsius. Of course, you will also find a selection of excellent premium rosé wines here at Wines D.O!
