Channing Daughters Rosso Fresco has a Long Island AVA and is made from hand-harvested grapes from both the North and the South forks. All the grapes were de-stemmed, crushed by foot and punched down by hand. Our 2018 Rosso Fresco was fermented wild/ambiently, was not fined, and filtered once. The wine spent five months in stainless steel tanks and a few older oak barrels before bottling.
There are beautiful high-toned aromas and flavors of red cherry, red raspberry, red plum, red current, spice, and earth. This dry red wine is medium bodied, has moderate (12%) alcohol, balanced acid, very soft, silky tannins and a juicy persistent finish. Rosso Fresco is a playful, full-flavored, fun, friendly red wine that pairs well with pastas and just about any fish, fowl or four-legged food you serve with it. (from the vintner)
