DORMILONA - YOKEL ROSÉ 2022
Rosé is made from the Grenache. Sourced from a dear gentleman Eugenio, who funs the family estate Vino Italia. Hand harvested, detested & left on skins for a day ,then basket pressed straight to amphora & oak. Once dry, blended & aged in a large concrete egg called Bacon. Simply racked to bottle with a kiss of a sulphur.
