The estate Tenuta delle Ripalte is a large property on the southern part of the Elba Island (Capoliveri) -Tuscany - 🇮🇹 and it is found within the Tuscan Archipelago National Park. The Fattoria -in the Tenuta- was founded in 2002.
15 hectares of vineyards all located over 180 meters above sea level high on the impervious cliffs with a perfect ventilation. The vineyard is planted in difficult soil, stony and highly drained: the vine does not produce a lot of grapes, but their quality is very high. No chemicals are used and the fertilization is limited and organic. Ripalte focuses their efforts towards a select few grapes: aleatico, vermentino, and alicante mainly (but also some Carignano, Grenache and Petit Manseng). Brut Rosato delle Ripalte is a sparkling rosé from 100% Aleatico grape variety (Charmant method). Deep pink colour with golden hues. Whereas the attention for Aleatico from Elba mainly focuses on passitos, here is a fresh and pleasant version of the rosatos. With a rounded mouthfeel and a balanced acidity marked by lingering minerality this wine shows the finesse of Aleatico. Lightly herbaceous on the nose, with Mediterranean floral scents (wild rose overall). Medium fruity aftertaste. #wine #winelover #italianwine #winetasting #winesensation #winepassion #wineries #wineoftheday #winetime #winelife #tuscany #elbaisland #isoladelba #aleatico #wineanddieofpleasure
