Pinko Pallino


Pinko Pallino is a Rosé produced from early harvested Sangiovese grapes. The quality of the fruit for this Rosé wine emphasizes freshness and lively acidity. It is a gorgeous, ever so light pink, grapefruit color, dry, with long acidity and structure, yet very easy to drink on a hot summer day. Pinko Pallino is released just six months after harvest and it is only aged in steel vats.
