Tasting Notes
Il Barco Ramato is a delicate salmon pink rosé made naturally using selected copper skinned Pinot Grigio grapes. This is a rare wine style that has become greatly sought after and very fashionable in Italy. It has the delicate perfumed aromas of peach and rose petals and soft, red fruit flavours on the palate. It is dry and well balanced, excellent to drink with fish and white meats.

Food
Excellent to drink with fish and white meats.

Region
A wide and temperate agricultural region stretching from Venice to Verona and north to the Alpine foothills. In the west around Lake Garda, are the important generic wines - Valpolicella, Soave and Bardolino. Much of Italy`s commercial Pinot Grigio and Merlot is grown further east, but the Glera grape makes the region`s distinctly fashionable sparkling wine, Prosecco. However the recent popularity of Amarone and Ripasso has really re-established this region as one of Italy best wine growing areas and quality is out of all recognition from the light carafe wines of the early 80`s.

Producer
The company was born as a retailer in 1928 in the Veneto region for sales of wines in casks and demi-johns to restaurants and small retailers. In the fifties the family expanded their horizons to selling wines across Central Europe and beyond. Throughout all this expansion, the Botter family retained control and the company is now run by the third generation and from their roots in Veneto they now have a portfolio of wines produced in some of Italy’s finest regions.
