Cantina Alpina Pale Mountain Rosato 2018
Cantina Alpina is the shared passion of Peter Pastan, owner of 2Amys, and William's Corner importer Nicolas Mestre. Their love of unusual and complex pink wines led them to the Alpine foothills of the south Tyrol (Südtirol) and the estate of Elisabetta Foradori. Here, with Emilio Foradori's
expertise, they craft rosé that showcases the region's native grape varieties and the unique terroir of the Dolomites. The Dolomites are often referred to as the Monti Pallidi, or "Pale Mountains", and for this 2018 Pale Mountain, they blended equal parts, Teroldego, Manzoni Bianco, and Pinot Grigio with vinification carried out in a combination of stainless steel, amphorae, and neutral barrel. This is a medium bodied, aromatic rosato that leans savory, inducing appetite for roasted white meats or fish with plenty of fresh herbs. 50 cases produced.
