Wine Details

La Spinetta Il Rosé di Casanova Toscana IGT

This pale orange-pink Tuscan Rosè is a blend of Sangiovese and Prugnolo Gentile (a Sangiovese clone). Tart and juicy, with citrusy grapefruit and tangerine dominating the nose and mouth, the wine’s aromatic profile is enriched by white peach and strawberry and floral and mineral notes. The Rosè shows great clarity, with a suave, penetrating finish that lingers with a floral tenacity. A great summer wine and an excellent accompaniment to fish and poultry.

La Spinetta Il Rosé di Casanova Toscana IGT 2023

Vinous Media (91)- "The 2023 Il Rosé di Casanova is exotic and distinctive. Almost Sauvignon-Blanc-like in character, it fleshes out with kiwi, gooseberry, grapefruit, thyme and tomato leaf notes. Bright, fleshy and lightly grippy (in a good way), demanding another sip. A tropical-inflected hint of mango and papaya sticks around after the finish."

La Spinetta Il Rosé di Casanova Toscana IGT 2022

Vinous Media (91)- "A blend of musky dried peaches and apricot offset by savory herbs wafts up from the 2022 Il Rosé di Casanova. It’s zesty and wickedly fresh, with vibrant acidity and wild citrus notes that excite the senses. The 2022 finishes floral and crisp, showcasing nectarine hints. Il Rosé di Casanova is a blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Prugnolo Gentile."

La Spinetta Il Rosé di Casanova Toscana IGT 2021

Vinous Media (91)- "The 2021 Il Rosé di Casanova is lovely with a bouquet that’s more savory than sweet, mixing crushed rocks with white strawberries and peach skins. While soothingly soft, there’s a salty core of minerality and vibrant acidity that creates a juicy and energetic expression, further accentuated by hints of sour melon. The 2021 tapers off remarkably fresh with a candied citrus twang and leaves the mouth watering for more. The Il Rosé di Casanova is an equal-parts blend of Sangiovese and Prugnolo Gentile." "
