    Selvagrossa "Ica" Marche Rosato '20

    At Perman Wine Selections we truly believe that the Marche is one of the last of the great and undiscovered regions of Italy. The wines of Selvagrossa are a prime example of what the region has to offer, with an undeniable touch of passion and care from the Taddei family. These wines bring great pleasure, and like the greatest Italian wines, are fabulous partners for the table.

    Selvagrossa, located in the Pesaro foothills facing the Adriatic coast of Le Marche is a very small estate with only 5 hectares of vineyards. Brothers Alberto and Alessandro Taddei inherited the estate in 2002 from their grandparents and the first Selvagrossa wine was made that same year from an old-vine Sangiovese vineyard originally planted in the early 1970’s by Alberto and Alessandro’s father and grandfather. 

    Today we have the newest vintage of their Rosato, named “Ica” after his daughter, Ludovica. The wine is made from Ciliegiolo, a grape most often seen in Tuscany. Its name is derived from the Italian word for "cherry" which gives a big hint to the flavor profile of the wine made from the variety! The climate here has cool Summer nights, and a base terroir with lots of clay. 

    This is without a doubt an all-time favorite rosé for PWS. This years vintage is beautifully concentrated, could this be the Tempier of the Marche?! Delicate florals abound alongside crunchy and sour cherries with a touch of the meatiness you find in the best Midwestern varieties like Montmorency and Balaton. The mixture of brininess, acidity and texture has us thinking of the best Muscadet, and similarly to the great wines of that region, this will only improve with some time in bottle. While pleasing and complete enough to drink on its own, this would be fabulous with grilled Shrimp, perhaps paired with a watermelon radish salad to honor the spicy freshness on display. Only 200 cases produced, if you’d like this to be your summer go-to act now!
