About The Wine
Rosé from Patrimonio is one of the great rosés of France, so therefore, the world. Leccia’s is made entirely from twenty-five-year-old Niellucciu vines (from the same genetic material as Tuscany’s famous Sangiovese) grown on clay and limestone—soils good for a compelling rosé. It’s a combination of directly pressed grapes and a saignée (literally means “bleeding” the wine), a process in which rosé is made as a byproduct of red wine production by pulling off more juice to improve the wine’s power and extraction. This brings a balance of depth to the aromas and fullness to the body. Malolactic fermentation is blocked to preserve as much natural acidity as possible and the elevage is entirely in stainless steel to keep it fresh and bright.
