Details

Riflesso Rose Eugenio Rosi, biodynamic, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Marzemino Crunchy, full bodied Rose. Lovely crunchy fresh Rose/Red wine with guts made from low yielding grapes. This Rose actually ages really well, delicious at 3 years of age, a more serious Rose than most which will stand up to gutsy mountain food. The 2017 vintage is a really quirky wine, full to the point of being basically a red wine, but still with the vivacity of a Rose. We suspect Eugenio was feeling creative when he made this wine and it ended up having a longer skin maceration than normal, he just probably felt like it! In any case, it is still a delicious wine.

Eugenio Rosi really is one of the great's of artisan wine making, he thinks outside the box, goes his own way and defies convention, not least with his 'Jesus Christ' like appearance. He is one of the key figures in the 'Dolomitici organisation which promotes artisan and natural production in the Trentino. He is also the first inspirational artisan wine maker I ever met over a memorable dinner at 'Due Veneti' in Marylebone. We had several bottles of his beautiful Marzemino and Eugenio was disarmingly chatty and humble. Poiema is named after his daughter who was very ill at birth and nearly died. Now a healthy little girl, she helps Eugenio stick the labels on his bottles. Eugenio is also an integral part of the 'Dolomitici' organisation which is a group of thirteen artisan wine producers from the Trentino who have come together to promote natural, sustainable wine production in their region. The wines of Eugenio typify the Trentino but also the natural style of the artisan and to a certain extent the purity of imperfection. Wines like his are not the same very year, they taste different every time you open them and in what context. Natural wine is alive and non more so than the delicious bottles produced in tiny quantity by this natural wine guru.

  1. How good is this wine?

    matteo ramazzina18/06/2018

    This wine is made by 100% marzemino grapes, an indigenous varietal in which Eugenio rosi specialises. The same as hi Poiema or Doron.

    cabernet sauvignon is only used in his esegesi.

    Hi Matteo, not quite true, I checked with Eugenio, this is based on Merlot, Cabernet and Marzemino, effectively from the vineyards that produce fruit for Esegesi and Poiema, most importantly, it tastes delicious! Cheers. Rob
