The best rosé wines in bag in box
Very often we usually think of rosés as a modern phenomenon, the result of a passing and fashionable consumption trend, wines to drink throughout the year which reach their diffusion peak in spring and summer, when temperatures begin to rise and you no longer want to drink reds. Rosé wine, on the other hand, is a founding part of some regional cultures , especially in southern Italy, which have always consumed it, especially in bulk during meals, something very far from the aperitif rosés which are indeed linked to the more popular tradition.
The head immediately flies to Puglia , home of the most famous Italian rosés in the world, based above all on Negroamaro and Primitivo, or on blends of international and local vines. The small natural cellars prefer the use of typical local varieties and, through their careful and delicate vinifications, have the aim of bringing out the most authentic and genuine face of this typology . Examples include the Rosato Salento IGT of Agricola Q, a young winery founded in 2020 and carried on by Antonio and Mina del Prete, daughter of the well-known Apulian wine craftsman Natalino del Prete and the Rosato Murgia IGT of Morasinsi based on Aglianico grapes in purity vinified with only indigenous yeasts and without filtration.
In Abruzzo, the rosé, locally called Cerasuolo, has always been the perfect companion to home meals and in taverns, considered as a more gastronomic and drinkable version of the classic Montepulciano vinified in red. The Abruzzo rosés in bag in box, far from being run-down vines without character, in most cases have a beautiful bright black cherry color, with a fresh, full and pleasantly mineral sip . A splendid representative of this category is certainly Rosato Colline Pescaresi IGT by MorMaj , as well as Vino Rosato Abruzzo by Francesco Cirelli , a historic face of natural wine in Abruzzo.
How is rosé wine made?
The enological techniques for the production of rosé wines foresee the use of red berried grapes vinified in a particular way in order to generate the classic rosé color which we expect to see in the glass. Spoiler alert: no, rosé is not made by mixing white and red wines together! There are basically two classic modes:
- Maceration on the skins : the red grapes are harvested, a little early, and left to macerate in contact with the skins, which contain anthocyanins, water-soluble pigments responsible for the color of the wine. To give rosés with softer shades, typical of Provençal wines, contact is usually not exceeded for 6-12 hours. The bag-in-box rosés available on Sfusobuono are characterized by a more intense and deep colour , due to maceration on the skins for at least 24 hours.
- Salasso or saignée - a French term which literally means 'bleeding' - or rather an enological technique mainly linked to conventional productions which consists in adding must from red grapes to white must. This method is mainly used in the production of sparkling wine bases for Champagne and Classic Method.
Rosé wine and food pairing
Bag-in-box rosés lend themselves perfectly to outdoor lunches, picnics and aperitifs at sunset, thanks to their delicacy of drinkability and extreme pleasantness on the nose. The rosés of Piedmont, such as that of Valli Unite and the Rosathos Vino Rosato Athos , are excellent combined with a mixed platter of cured meats from the area of origin, in particular raw and cooked salami, and fresh or medium-aged cheeses such as goat cheese , a robiola or a toma from Roccaverano. Southern rosés, on the other hand, can easily accompany more complex dishes such as a fish soup or mussels alla marinara, as well as a traditional margherita pizza or a pinsa with stracciatella, rocket and cherry tomato.
