The world’s first UnderWater Rosé wine, the First Bolgheri in appellation in history aged underwater in the sea at over 50 meters comes from Castagneto Carducci and Tenuta Campo Al Signore’s production.
Aged for more than 180 days at a pressure of 6 bars in an underwater cellar through techniques developed by Jamin, an engineering company for underwater aging techniques for wines and spirits, it “lands” in its first UWW version from June 10, 2022.
Only 888 numbered bottles for the 2022 collection, a deep harmonic wine characterized by underwater aging, which was and still is also being studied by the Department of Agriculture in Florence
This collection bears the white UWW guarantee label to signify that the product has undergone a true Maturation technique according to Jamin Underwaterwines’ models, but it is still in the adjustment and optimization phase of the processes that may continue for at least two collections, the goal then being to conclude the declination of the techniques and provide a true Black Label UWW that is, a standard of quality that is consistent over time.
The wine, in this case a 2018 vintage, presents itself with exceptional brightness and a color that almost recalls Orange wines
On the nose, an unexpected complexity evokes ripe red fruits among the first peach skins, and leads us towards spicy notes that are not at all obvious.
On the palate it is soft and elegant with a persistence that on the aftertaste leads us back to the red fruit we had previously found, but ranging from peach peel to raspberry and small berries almost in jam version, in the center of the mouth we find it elegant soft and fine.
Striking in the closing is the great shoulder of the hard components such as great sapidity’ and good freshness that for a 2018 rosé wine are by no means taken for granted, but for the original UnderWaterWines are a trademark of the aging process.
A great product for lovers of rosé wines lends itself willingly to a serving temperature of about 10 12 degrees, in a pairing with crudités and fish starters especially if coquillages.
