Fattoria Ambra, an organic producer in the Carmignano area of northern Tuscany, makes a lovely rosato called Rosato di Carmignano Vin Ruspo. It’s a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvigon (which they call Uva Francesca, or “French Grape”) and Canaiolo Nero. This is definitely a bargain at $13 or less!
Fattoria Ambra has belonged to the Romei Rigoli family since 1870. The estate is located near the Ombrone river and the Villa Medicea of Poggio a Caiano. It is named after the poem “Ambra”, written in the 15th century by Lorenzo Il Magnifico.
