The sea breeze

 

TM Rosé was born in 2014, to complete the picture of our landscape with a tribute to the beaches of our coast. A small production of rosé wine, with a marine dawn colour.
Delicate and fresh, it has a gentle structure that makes it perfect both as an aperitif and to accompany fish-based dishes.

 

It is composed of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Mourvèdre, early harvested by hand, from dawn to midday.
The grapes are softly and briefly pressed, and then ferment in steel vats at low temperatures to preserve freshness and aromas. Once the blend has been established, it undergoes cold tartaric stabilization before being bottled.
It refines in the bottle for 4 months before being released onto the market.

TM Rosé 2023

 

L’inverno, mite e non molto piovoso, è stato seguito da una lunga primavera, fresca e ricca di pioggia. Il germogliamento è avvenuto nella norma, tra il 20 e il 25 marzo, così come tutte le successive fasi vegetative. L’invaiatura è iniziata a metà luglio, in un’estate calda ma generalmente non torrida, a parte i picchi registrati attorno al 20 agosto.

 

La raccolta, manuale e anticipata, è cominciata il 25 di agosto per il
Merlot, per riprendere il 7 settembre con il Cabernet Franc e concludersi il
giorno dopo con il Mourvèdre.

Winter was mild, with average rainfall. Spring was cool and dry, disturbed at the beginning of April by a few hours frost that didn’t cause big damages but slowed down the vegetative development for the following months. Summer was dry and regular, with high temperatures in
mid-August that rapidly cooled down to allow a mild and ventilated harvest. The Merlot was hand harvested, from sunrise to noon, the 23rd and 24th of August, the Cabernet Franc on the 31st and the Mourvèdre on the 11th of September.

TM Rosè 2019

 

Winter was regularely wet and quite mild, with sporadic nights below zero. The vines sprouted in the third decade of March.

Summer was hot but not torrid, refreshed in fact by some mid-July rain.

Of a luminous pale pink with pristine golden glare, TM Rosé 2019 offers at the nose hints of mallow and geranium, citruses, green apple and sea pebbles. In the mouth it is fresh and stimulating, very linear, sapid and persistent. A really versatile wine, perfect for the “aperitivo” and to accompany oysters, white fish, and fish and meat tartares.

TM Rosé 2017

 

Winter was mild and dry, followed by a warm Spring with low rainfall. The phenological phases were quite regular but the plant development was less vigorous than usual. The high temperatures and the scarcity of rainfall continued throughout the Summer. Veraison was precocious, around the 10 of July. To capture the freshness of the fruit we had to move up the harvest of the Merlot to the 14 and 15 of August, and to the 21st for the Cabernet Franc.

 

Of a luminous pale onion skin colour, TM Rosé 2017 opens up to the nose with great richness of floral and juicy summer fruit notes: geranium, white peach, medlar fruit, together with pink grapefruit and winter cherry. In the mouth it is rich but delicate, with a fresh persistence that confirms it as very versatile wine, perfect both for “aperitivo” and to accompany a meal.

TM Rosé 2016

 

A mild winter with low rainfall led to a slightly precocious budding. It was a good spring and even if there was little rain the plants benefited from a regular and very healthy growth. A textbook mid-July veraison was accom-panied by a beautiful and breezy summer. With its classic pale onion-skin colour, this vintage presents lovely notes of apricot, medlar fruit, pear, winter cherry and pink grapefruit. Delicate and fresh, with a gentle structure that makes it perfect both for “aperitivo” and to accompany fish and seafood dishes.

90/100 FALSTAFF – 2023
Rosa salmone chiaro e limpido. Al naso pregiati lamponi selvatici, delicata salvia, fiori bianchi freschi. Al palato con frutta chiara e acidità danzante, vivace, senza fronzoli, si beve molto bene.

90/100 WINE CRITICS, luglio 2023
Preciso ed intrigante mostra note di fiori di limone, gelsomino, acacia, biancospino ed agapanto. Tanto lime e foglie di tè verde descrivono la scena secondaria. Corpo pieno, caldo ed avvolgente nel sorso chiude armonico e bilanciato. Bevi ora.

91/100 FALSTAFF, Simon Staffler
Di colore rosa chiaro confetto, al naso presenta note di fragranti frutti di bosco, con un pizzico di fragoline e un pizzico di spezie. Fresco al palato e croccante, si mostra senza fronzoli ed è di ottima bevibilità. Finale succoso.

Rosa petalo di fiore di pesco. I profumi sono delicati ed armoniosi di note di macchia mediterranea ed erbe aromatiche miste a mirto, melagrana, lamponi e fragole di bosco. Il sorso è fresco, sapido, caldo che invoglia alla bevuta. Finale pulito coerente con il bouquet olfattivo

90/100 VINIFERA MUNDI by Jean François Guyard
Questo è chiaramente uno dei migliori rosati che ho assaggiato negli ultimi anni… Un vino edonistico. Consigliatissimo.


89/100 VINOUSMEDIA, 2021 – Eric Guido
Pretty notes of fresh-cut roses and young peach lift up from the 2020 TM Rosé. It’s soft textured yet lively and fresh, with ripe orchard fruits balanced by juicy acidity and sweet citrus. While a bit short on the finish, it’s pleasantly crisp and perfumed. This is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

92/100 WINESCRITIC.COM, Raffaele Vecchione, settembre 2021
Estremamente accattivante nel profilo sensoriale alterna note di fiori di pesco, magnolia, mandorle bianche, citronella, timo selvatico e talco. In sottofondo c’è di più nella bellezza di rosmarino delicato e pietra calda sbriciolata. Corpo pieno, teso e vibrante al palato offre una distensione notevole ed un finale di notevole persistenza. Vibrante e secco, impossibile non amarlo. Bevi ora.


🍷 GAMBERO ROSSO 2020/21
Blend di Merlot e Cabernet Franc, il TM Rosé ’20 è delicato e fresco negli aromi fruttati, mentre in bocca è sapido e beverino.


89/100 DOCTOR WINE by Daniele Cernilli, 2021
Rosa tenue tendente alla buccia di cipolla. Piacevole naso con sentori di petali di rosa, melograno, pompelmo e fiori d’arancio. Una bella bocca, fresca, pulita e leggiadra.


▼▼▼ BIBENDA 2022
Rosa tenue. Olfatto scandito da sentori di fragoline di bosco, lamponi, melagrana, pepe rosa e macchia mediterranea. Sorso divertente, agile, scattante, di vivacissima freschezza e golosa sapidità. Fruttato e iodato il finale.

Jane MacQuitty, maggio 2020
Rosé top. Stupendo, luminoso e brioso, prugna rossa e radicchio odoroso, rosa pieno toscano.


Olly Smith, maggio 2020
Struttura e gusto, il TM è un vino fenomenale da bere pasteggiando. Credetemi, l’ho bevuto l’altro giorno con un sandwich di roast-beef e mi ha lasciato a bocca aperta, perché ha struttura, come un rosso, ma anche tutta la freschezza di un bianco. Sono due vini in uno, tutto il piacere in un punto solo, sul tuo viso in un giorno di sole! Lasciatevi coinvolgere!

88/100 DOCTOR WINE by Daniele Cernilli, 2020
Elegante nuance rosa. Naso incentrato su intriganti toni salmastri e di mandorla, poi fiori di acacia, papaya e lieve miele. Il tocco al palato è felpato, immediatamente sapido e asciutto, ma subito reidratato da una progressiva linea salina e fresca. Piacevole chiosa sgrumata e di mandorla.


▼▼▼ BIBENDA 2021
Veste rosa tenue per un naso tinteggiato da toni di ribes rosso e granatina, rosa e pepe. Sorso misurato, dal valido apporto fresco/sapido. Chiude con ricordi di macchia marina. Vinificazione e sosta in acciaio per 4 mesi.


🍷 GAMBERO ROSSO 2020/21


89/100 VINOUSMEDIA, 2020 – Eric Guido
The 2019 TM Rosé is fresh yet also quite earthy, leaning toward savory herbs and crushed stone minerality, as notes of young strawberry and pretty florals come forward. On the palate, soft textures give way to a mix of ripe red berries and melon tones, carried by brisk acids. It finishes a bit short, yet with a mouthwatering, almost-salty quality, which just begs you to take another sip. There may not be unseen depths here, but the 2019 Tenuta Monteti is ready to give a lot of pleasure.

SUNDAY TIMES
Will Lyons, 27 May 2019. One of my favourite is from Tuscany. In fact, it could well be my rosé of the year. When I first tasted this Tuscan wine, I thought it could be my rosé of the summer. I haven’t changed my mind. It is a delicious blend of 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc: crisp, dry and full of feisty Italian personality.


THE MAIL MAGAZINE
Matthew Jukes, 15 June 2019. My favourite Italian rosé of the year, this has a delicate and alluring taste that’s impossible to resist – especially with Seared Scallops With Serrano Ham.


88/100 VINOUS MEDIA, Ian D’Agata, May 2019.
Luminous pink. Suggestions of white flowers, pink grapefruit and herbs on the nose. Then bright and juicy but slightly fruit-challenged on the long chewy finish.

2017

 

▼▼▼ BIBENDA 2019
Un bel rosa tenue anticipa delicato intreccio olfattivo di fiori e frutti rossi, anche di bosco. Un timbro squisitamente fruttato si appropria del gusto, ben bilanciato. Chiusura pulita, su note di erbe aromatiche. Inox.

86/100 THE WINE ADVOCATE, 30 November – Monica Larner
This is a pale pink and refreshing rosé made with a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The 2016 TM Rosé achieves the palest of pink colors and offers a subdued bouquet with assorted wild berry and cranberry aromas. The finish is lean, short and crisp. This is a pleasantly easy-drinking wine that I happily paired with Chinese takeout.

88/100 DOCTOR WINE, 19 October – Chiara Giannotti
Colore rosa tenue, tipico buccia di cipolla. Il naso è delicato di frutti di bosco e fiori bianchi, con una nota agrumata di pompelmo rosa. Grande equilibrio e freschezza in bocca, con una buona sapidità e interessante personalità.
