A delicately coloured 'onion skin' rose. The nose reveals hints of berries, fresh currants and toast, with more sweet berries and savoury flavours on the palate. A charming and pretty wine.
talian sparkling wine is not all about Prosecco, as leading Franciacorta producer Ferghettina has proved time and time again.
Ferghettina is a family winery – established in 1991 by Roberto Gatti, and run with his wife Andreina, and their children Laura and Matteo. Starting with just 3-4ha of vineyard and a small production of Franciacorta Brut, Ferghettina has now grown to become one of the finest Franciacorta wineries.
Situated in the southern half of Lombardy – on the edge of the town of Adro, just south of Lake Iseo – the majority of plantings are Chardonnay (approx. 70%) along with Pinot Noir (and just 4ha Pinot Blanc for their still wines). They now have 200ha of vineyard across 11 different villages, mostly at 250-300m altitude. Each vineyard confers a unique character on the resulting base wine, giving Roberto a broad spectrum of styles to blend for each cuveé. It is this skilful blending, meticulous attention to detail and long bottle maturation that give Ferghettina’s wines great finesse and individuality.
Ferghettina are now in the process of organic conversion.
Matteo designed the eye-catching, square-based bottle used for Milledi and Rosé Brut. First used for the 2007 vintage (released in 2011) – the triangular, flattened sides provide a surface area around two and a half times greater than that of a standard bottle, giving more lees to wine contact and therefore greater complexity.

Perfect chilled as an aperitif, or served with red fruits and light desserts.
As well as an ideal partner to aperitifs, this wine is a good match with fresh strawberries, sorbet or even tarte tatin.
Subtle and delicate in colour this is an elegant Rosé with an abundance of bright red fruit and fresh acidity, supported by fine toasty notes developed by ageing on lees in the bottle.
