Gentilini Notes Rose
VARIETIES: 90% Moschofilero, 10% Mavrodaphne.
GRAPE ORIGIN: Moschofilero is a Peloponnesian ‘gray’ variety that gives
aromatic, Muscat-flavoured grapes. We grow both varieties in our estate
SOIL: The grapes grow in the well-drained, limestone soils of its
vineyards close to the winery in Minies, Kefalonia. Proximity to the sea
creates a mild micro-climate that moderates temperature extremes. Yields
for Moschofilero are around 4,500kg/ha
CLIMATE: Wet winter and spring. Hot, dry summer
VINIFICATION: All vinification and bottling is done at the Gentilini
winery. The grapes are de-stemmed and extraction lasts for three days
prior to pressing. The must is then cold-fermented to complete dryness in
stainless steel vats. The finished wine is cold stabilized and filtered just
once prior to bottling to retain its aromas and delicate colour.
PRODUCTION: Just 8,000 bottles were made in 2018
TASTING NOTES: A fresh, perfectly balanced wine with lively acidity. Fresh, muscat aromas
of jasmine, rose petals and hints of spice.
FOOD PAIRING: Seafood, especially fried, white cheese, pasta, fish or as an aperitif. Try it
also with Indian and Chinese food.
Alcohol: 12.5% Alc by Vol
Total Acidity: 6.5/l tartaric acid
Residual Sugar: 1.0g/l
