Y BY 11 MINUTES
This rosé is the result of the elegant blend of two indigenous varieties, Corvina and Trebbiano di Lugana, and one international variety, Carmenère. The red grapes are vinified after a very gentle pressing while the white Trebbiano grapes undergo a light maceration on the skin for 8-10 hours. The must is chilled and transferred into steel tanks, where it remains long enough to separate the solids from liquid. Alcoholic fermentation follows at a temperature between 13° and 16° C. We continue monitoring the alcoholic fermentation, as well as the yeast condition, on a daily basis. 10% of the blend finishes alcoholic fermentation in new French oak, medium toasted tonneaux, while of the remaining 30% of the blend is matured for 4 months in French oak barrique and second use tonneaux.
Y by 11 Minutes is a rosé of complexity and freshness, structure and elegance, fruity and rich on the palate, like two opposites that can live perfectly in harmony even though they are very different from one another. Corvina, which dominates the blend, offers typical hints of red fruit and significant acidity. Trebbiano offers delicate aromas of citrus fruits and white flowers, giving elegance and length on the mid palate. Finally, Carmenère gives the wine good structure and a distinctive backbone. Delicate notes of vanilla and toasted aromas are created by the alcoholic fermentation carried out in oak, offering a complex rosé wine that reveals notes typically recognised as evolutionary.
