Terredora di Paolo
Rosaenovae Irpinia DOC

A great rosé should be made from very ripe grapes, which is sometimes can be difficult to obtain from Aglianico in the cool climate of the Irpinia region. However, the clay soil, southern exposure and constantly warm temperatures with cool nights allow the Terredora di Paolo vineyards to achieve Aglianico that is extraordinarily mature with a crystalline acidity. This rosé shows both the great versatility of Aglianico and the creative innovation of Terredora di Paolo winemaking. “Rosaenovae” means “new roses” in latin. In Campania rose is considered an holy flower dedicated to Mother Mary. During the month of May a local tradition wants people to wash their faces with water and rose petals.
