2020 Commune of Buttons Rosé
The Commune Rosé Nebbiolo came from the difficulties of 2020 outside of the vineyard. With an ever-shrinking international vintage staff as a result of the pandemic we decided to pick the Nebbiolo early to experiment with a lighter bodied wine. The Nebbiolo was picked in the first week of April and crushed as whole bunches underfoot and left on-skins for two days. The wine was fermented in threes puncheons and aged on full lees for eleven months.
The Commune Rosé is a bright intense wine with an explosion of red fruits of cherries, cranberries, and raspberry. Its strength is in its varietal complexity of acidity and tannin.
A truly noble Rosé!
