Wine of the Week: Montaribaldi Rosato "Sigiuja"

This week's featured wine is a versatile rosato from Montaribaldi made from 100% Nebbiolo. The Montaribaldi Rosato "Sigiuja" is fresh and bright with notes of watermelon, citrus, wild cherry, and pink flowers on the nose; mouth watering acidity, with a crisp and dry finish. In terms of pairings, this rosato can be served with an array of meals; from lighter pasta dishes, to white meat and seafood cuisine. An ideal summer wine!    

In 1968 Pino Taliano founded Taliano Guiseppe. He acquired vineyards throughout the Piedmont and his desire was to create a diverse array of holdings that could highlight the different soils, climatic conditions and traditional varietals of the Piedmont. In 1994, Pino's son Luciano took over the reins and changed the name of the family business to Azienda Agricola Montaribaldi. The name Montaribaldi refers to the ancient Roman road that linked the winery to the different vineyards throughout the Piedmont, thus creating a philosophical and geographical umbrella that tie Luciano's forward looking Domaine to the rich viticultural history of the region. The vision of the Montaribaldi reflects the mantra of "place over process" and the winemaking is done in such a way as to bring this to fruition.
