Fattoria di Magliano Illario Rosato della Maremma Toscana DOC

Illario is an expressive rose produced from Tuscany’s signature varietal, Sangiovese, named in honor of the proprietor’s father whose middle name was Illario. A well-structured wine through the engaging finish layered with aromas of sweet red cherries and tart raspberries and notes of violets and herbs.  It is fresh with bright acidity making it an ideal food wine.  Following fermentation in stainless steel, this wine was aged for 3 months on the fine lees prior to bottling adding depth. Made from 100% certified organic Sangiovese grapes.

This is a very attractive rosato from coastal Tuscany that opens with a pale pink color and delicate aromas of rose petal and wild berry. There’s a touch of sour cherry on the close.

The 2011 Illario (100% Sangiovese) is loaded with personality and sheer character. It is an excellent choice for readers who appreciate a bolder style of rose. Layers of fruit blossom from the glass as this rich, expansive wine opens up in the glass. The 2011 can be enjoyed as an aperitif, but it also has more than enough body to accompany a wide range of foods. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2013.
