STORY

"My family has always made wine. To hear it from my father, Carmine, these were not fancy wines. They were everyday wines; wines that were on the dinner table each night. Our Rosso & Bianco wines are made in the same spirit; wine for everyday life."  —Francis Ford Coppola

Our Rosso & Bianco wines have always been very special to us. Not only do they pay tribute to our family’s heritage, they are some of the first wines we ever created. As a way of honoring this beloved brand, we designed a new work-of-art for the label.

Rosso & Bianco Chardonnay offers the light, crisp character of freshly picked fruit. By fermenting in stainless steel rather than oak, the varietal’s fragrance is shown in its natural state uninfluenced by wood or the spice notes that barrels create. This technique gives the wine a lighter texture, making it food friendly and delicious when paired with shellfish, mild, semi-soft cheeses, and desserts.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES

In order to create a lighter bodied wine that pairs well with food, Rosso & Bianco Chardonnay is fermented and finished in stainless steel instead of oak. This technique shows off the varietal’s crisp, freshly picked fruit character in its natural state rather than accentuating the spice and wood nuances that come from barrels. To derive a creamy, round palate and added volume, the wine is aged on fine lees.
