Product Description

Piedmontese-inspired owner and winemaker Sam Bilbro, born, raised and based in Sonoma County, picks selectively to make this light, refreshingly complex wine, cofermenting 47% Nebbiolo with 28% Barbera and 25% Dolcetto. It holds its acidity well, balancing it against a backdrop of fruity tangy grapefruit and orange, with a mineral stoniness that’s hard to pin down. Idlewild’s focus is two-fold: First, Piedmontese varieties as single varietal and vineyard wines of typicity, energy, and balance; and second, Piedmontese varietal blends that balance joy and depth while complimenting the table. There is a play between savory tones versus freshness and subtlety versus power that make this rosé very intriguing.
