2021 - Borreo Ranch Sangiovese Rosa


New Release.

Rosa is the Italian term for Rosé, typically made with grapes indigenous to Italy. Borreo Rosa is crafted from predominately Sangiovese and produced in traditional Rosé methods, resulting in a rich, flavorful wine.

About Borreo Ranch
In 1888, Italian immigrant and Napa grocer Felix Borreo built a stone and redwood winery on his vineyard property near Napa Soda Springs. Borreo planted new vines in addition to fruit and olive orchards. In 1992, the Miller family purchased the site, and the winery remained one of Napa’s last ‘ghost’ wineries – until it was destroyed in the 2017 wildfires. These bottlings are the Miller family tribute to Felix Borreo and this fruitful property.

Behind the Label
The illustrations of these botanicals on the bottle were designed by artist and Walt Disney’s great-granddaughter, Annabelle Rey Miller – a fourth-generation winery owner.

Pair the Rosa with this Mussels and Shrimp Coconut Curry

Rosa also goes well with Smoked Salmon and Crème Fraîche Omelet for brunch, with Margrit's Barbecued Shrimp as an appetizer, Laura Werlin's Truffle Cream Mac & Cheese for winter comfort food, or a Burrata dish.

Borreo Ranch Sangiovese Rosa
Tasting Notes Summer berry aromas and flavors suggesting strawberry-shortcake and sweet raspberry combine with ripe watermelon and delicate notes of rose petals and nectarine. Medium-bodied with lively acidity, crisp minerality, and a long, tart white cherry finish. Reviews 92 points, The Tasting Panel Magazine, Meridith May, May-June 2022 issue
90 points, Wine.com, Wilfred Wong, 2/9/2022 Vintage Notes The 2021 vintage will be remembered for its high quality, with intensely flavored, small-sized berries and a smooth harvest season. The season started off with very little rain, leading to the second year of dry conditions in Napa Valley, creating a more natural load on the vines, requiring less pruning and dropping of fruit. The resulting grapes produced an amazing vintage.
