Wine of the Week - Montaribaldi Rosato 'Siguija'

This week's featured wine, the Montaribaldi Langhe Rosato is made from 100% Nebbiolo, the same Nebbiolo that goes into their elegant and structured Barbaresco, though it's picked a little earlier. This rosato is structued and aromatic, with notes of strawberries and crushed flowers. It's bone dry with great acidity that supports the fuller body on the palate. This isn't your everyday summer sipper - instead this wine wants food, just like any Nebbiolo. A great choice for a more "serious" rosé.

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.
