Drink When

Inspiration strikes, you’re beginning a new project or when you’re craving the feeling of sun on your skin. This is a wine for journeying; faraway to a balcony on the Mediterranean coast, to a favorite fall memory, or back to your body after a long day.

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 wine is always textured, but this year we moved to a non vintage blend to accentuate these layers even more: NV no 1 is 80% 2019, which brings in rich aged notes, and 20% 2020, which uplifts the blend with a little more fruit character.
