Negroamaro Rosato NV no. 2

100% Negroamaro; 40% 2020 + 40% 2019 + 20% 2018 · Mendocino County · 120 cases

What keeps you feeling rooted? We crafted this year’s Negroamaro Rosato with not two, but three vintages for a wine that encourages you to explore the depths. Press the last rose petals of the season with woodsy aromas of almond and agave layered into a palate of fresh baked scones and stone fruit pits. This aged wine invites you to shed summer’s spontaneity for a sense of ritual and reverence.

Martha's Notes

The Negroamaro Rosato is one of my favorite wines. With its racing acidity, concentration, and ample body, I believe it will show balance and beauty at any point in its lifetime. Drink now if you’d like to experience more of its fruit, or age as you please to continue to accentuate its body. This wine has an autumnal thread running through it. Drinking it any time of year, I am transported to a rocky Mediterranean coast, where fall is still warm. I can smell sea air, ripe prickly pears, and herbs drying in the golden September sun. Our very own Bricarelli Ranch Negroamaro fruit has such incredible concentration; we age this wine not according to its category (rosé, which would not usually have long elevage), but by what the fruit in this unique parcel dictates. Also very unique for rosé: we barrel ferment and age this wine on lees, after a good foot treading and an overnight maceration on the stems and skins. This is our second non vintage Negroamaro Rosato and we’re becoming enamored with how blending multiple vintages together can result in texturally layered, uniquely complex wine. In contrast to Non Vintage No. 1 (80% 2019 + 20% 2020), this second edition includes a small portion of wine from 2018 (kept in barrel for 3+ years) and 2019, with a greater percentage of deeply concentrated 2020 wine.

Vineyard:

Negroamaro from Bricarelli Ranch, Ukiah, Mendocino County; planted in 2005; head trained, dry farmed (no irrigation); farmed by us using only organic products; no use of pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers; gravelly loam soils (Squawrock-Witherall).

Vinification Notes:

A non vintage blend of Negroamaro from 2018, 2019, and 2020. In 2018 and 2019 we processed the fruit using our traditional, Italian-inspired “Vino di una notte” rosato technique: gently food-treading the grapes and resting the juice on skins overnight before pressing the slightly extracted juice the following morning. In 2020 the concentration of the harvested fruit was unmistakable: spicy, sweet, and very concentrated — no foot-treating required! After pressing, each vintage was fermented in neutral oak barrique and continued élevage, unracked on fine lees, separately (by vintage). At blending in 2022, the respective wines spent 22, 34, and 46 months maturing in barrel. Unfined. Unfiltered. Sediment expected.
