Vinification

The Langhe Rosato Cereja is made from the Barbera and Nebbiolo grapes that are picked by hand. The wine is vinified as rosé, with maceration on the skins for several hours. Finally, a maturation of 6 months takes place in stainless steel tanks.

Colour

The “Cereja” has the beautiful color of the rosé from ‘Provence’: Pale & salmon pink.

Intense vegetal notes with fresh citrus & light spices.

Taste impression

In the mouth it is fresh, minerally and pleasant. The structure of the Nebbiolo grape gives the opportunity to drink this wine all year round.

Culinary advice

Typical Piemontese antipasti, crustaceans and molluscs, raw fish, oysters, pasta and risotto.

Tasting Notes

The Great Hammersma

“Who would have ever thought that you could also make rosé from that venerable, but often rather stiff grape Nebbiolo?

Yes, of course you can make rosé from any dark grape. It’s a matter of letting the skins give some color to the wine in the making, and separate the pink juice from the skins. But rosé from the grape that also produces the strict, old-fashioned barolos and barbarescos?

Anyway. At least, here they can. It is a matter of working with love in the vineyard that has been treated in a friendly manner, picking beautifully ripe grapes, and making wine with care and attention.

Then you get wine that is a dignified pale pink like the chic Provence rosé, which is fine and timid in smell, subtle in taste, tar, but still present in the long aftertaste that is reminiscent of the rose-colored dawn of a special pleasant spring day.”

– Hamersma, 2022
