About Nebbiolo Rosato

Nebbiolo Rosato is made with 100% Nebbiolo grapes but is not as tannic as Nebbiolo wines such Barolo and Barbaresco.
The pink color comes from a brief contact between the skins and the must.

Historically the Nebbiolo wines were originally vinified in a light Rosé version. So Nebbiolo Rosato is the original Nebbiolo, similar history as Claret in Bordeaux.
