WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
This Rosato is made by the Cenatiempo winery starting from a blend of different local vines, among which the Aglianico and the Per'e palummo stand out. These varieties grow with different forms of training (guyot, sapling, spurred cordon), within terroir with different conformation with both volcanic and sedimentary subsoils. The harvest takes place in October and the must ferments in stainless steel containers, briefly macerating on the skins. The refinement is carried out for a few months only in steel, so as to keep the integrity of the original aromatic bouquet intact.
YOU WILL LOVE IT FOR...
its freshness and flavor.
We are on the beautiful island of Ischia. The viticultural history here is very ancient: numerous archaeological finds of objects destined to contain fermented wine are kept (for example the cup of Nestor, referred to in the Iliad, probably imported from Rhodes and on which there is an inscription that alludes to powers of the drink it contains). The climate is dry, mild and windy, with very little rainfall: this makes the cultivation destined for the production of fresh, savory and drinkable wines. The soils are dark and crumbly and rich in potassium, which favors the formation of sugars in the ripening phase. Varieties such as Aglianico, Piedirosso, Guarnaccia, Biancolella and Forastera are grown here.
Cenatiempo is one of the most common and typical surnames of the island of Ischia, one of those local symbols; the winery was founded in 1949 and since then has been cultivating and producing small masterpieces. The vineyard extends between 300 and 600 meters above the sea, with vineyards that offer spectacular views with the unmistakable blue background, where the distant horizon creates contact between sea and sky. The cellar has been modernized over the years and today is equipped with cutting-edge technologies, without ever forgetting the traditions of the area.
We are in the presence of a wine made on a volcano that meets the sea, where the lava meets the Mediterranean sea; these two opposing souls blend and give life to exceptional wines, with a well-defined saline vein and a pleasant drinkability. Cenatiempo perfectly expresses both the maritime and the volcanic side of the island, it implements a management of vineyards with organic farming, where the steep slopes often do not allow any form of mechanization. Viticulture is heroic, practiced with spontaneous grassing between the rows and enhancement of the indigenous varieties of the Ischia wine territory, such as Biancolella, Forastera and Piedirosso, in just 6 hectares of vineyards.
