Wine of the Week - Montaribaldi Rosato "Sigiuja"

Rose is not always the first choice for red wine lovers, however this week's featured wine is an exception. The Montaribaldi Langhe rosato is made from 100% Nebbiolo, the same Nebbiolo that goes into their elegant and structured Barbaresco; and has the structure and complexity to prove it! This rosato is full bodied, with intense aromas of strawberries and crushed flowers. It's bone dry with great acidity that pairs with a variety of meats and dishes. In addition to being an complex and elegant rosato, Sigiuja is also close to the Taliano Family. The wine is named after Luciano's three daughters, who also were the artists behind the playful label!  

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.
