Altaneve Rosé is an exclusive blend of 70% pinot nero grapes from the Oltrepò Pavese region in the hills of northwestern Italy, and 30% glera grapes from the Valdobbiadene hills in northeastern Italy. This unique blend of the two grapes showcases each varietal’s best qualities, maintaining the fantastic minerality and body of the pinot nero grape with the rounder flavor profile and cleaner, more delicate finish of the glera grape, creating a unique experience.
