Italy

Rose wines from Italy began life due to the difficulties growers and makers had producing full bodied reds. There is a long and fascinating history of rose wine in Italy, especially in the southern regions and this light, rose-coloured wine created from problematic red wine creation actually became a popular drink and developed into the Italian roses we love today.

Italian rose wine almost always begins with the term rosato, although sometimes chiaretto and ramato are used too. The rose wines of Abruzzo are also often labelled as cerasulo due to their bright hues. The Fine Wine Company source high quality rose wines from across Italy and ensure that we choose bottles to suit the different palates of our customers. Northeast Italy, for example, is known for its delicate, subtly flavoured roses whilst southern Italy, including Sicily, is known for drier, fuller bodied rose wines. Some regions in Italy blend red and white grapes to create their roses although it is much more common for red grapes to be macerated for a shorter time period than usual.

Our range of rose wines from Italy are ready for you to explore.
