Allegrante Rosé

Blending our internationally esteemed Nebbiolo with recently established Petit Syrah has resulted in a vintage wine of complex aromatics and gratifying mouth feel, with the delightful lightness desired in a fine rosé.

In 1835 Senator Henry Clay acquired Allegrante, a highly prized and beautiful thoroughbred, from Governor James Barbour, hereditary owner of this Estate.

This mare contributed in establishing the stable of Ashland Farm which eventually won three Kentucky Derby.

Today, from the same slopes where Allegrante roamed in her youth, we are crafting an elegant, vivacious and classic old world rosé.

We will be celebrating the 2019 growing season for many years to come, for giving us white wines of great intensity and fragrance, and reds of unquestionably long age-worthiness. The whole season was ideal, from a frost-free spring with abundant moisture, to a summer with moderate rainfall and steady warm temperature building to extended, emphatic heat, with clear skies permitting optimum pacing of picking in the early fall.
