Franciacorta Brut Rose ‘Radijan’, Ronco Calino
Dedicated to Gianni Radici, Paolo’s father, this is a Franciacorta with strong personality. 100% Pinot Noir. Skin fermented briefly to become rose. 20% of the base wine ages in barriques, 10% of which are new each year. Wine spends 24 months on the lees during the secondary fermentation. 500 cases produced annually. Perfect pairing with well-aged salami and ham, or pasta dishes with rich sauces.

Press & Reviews
The non-vintage Franciacorta Radijan Brut Rose is a mature and creamy rose sparkler that exhibits an amber-pink color and pretty orange highlights. The wine carries its aromatic weight with grace: ripe peach, melon and baked bread are framed by chalk and finely chiseled lines. A spot of exotic spice or nutmeg colors the fresh, delicately foaming finale. This bottle was disgorged in April 2013.
