For centuries it was the only wine of the Serenissima to make its way abroad, even as far as the Orient. Today Ca’ di Rajo, the company based at San Polo di Piave, in the Province of Treviso, exports it to 40 countries around the world, from the USA to Thailand, and from Estonia to Malaysia. Here, just a few kilometres from the River Piave, Raboso is not only a wine but a way of life, a piece of history to be preserved whilst constantly striving for higher quality. Alongside such wines as its Raboso Piave DOC Riserva Notti di Luna (the 2007 won a Gold Medal at the 2014 Concours Mondial in Brussels), Ca’ di Rajo has decided to offer wine lovers a new, versatile, semi-sparkling pink version of this indigenous varietal.
Ca’ di Rajo’s Rosè is a rosé wine made from Raboso grapes. Its scent is reminiscent of cherries and wild raspberries. It is excellent with contemporary food and perfect for enjoying during the summer: as a relaxing treat after a day’s sunbathing, for an aperitif with friends or to accompany raw seafood such as oysters, Venus clams and scampi. For those with a sweet tooth, accompanying it with dark chocolate is an irresistible temptation.
Ca’ di Rajo’s Rosè has a very deep pink hue and an extremely fine, persistent perlage. It offers a refined bouquet, with hints of rose, strawberry, orange, cherry and raspberry. On the palate, it is dry, displaying a good balance between its acidity and sugars. It tastes of strawberries, with hints of green apples and wild berries.
