Italian term for rosé-like wine made from red grapes. It means "partridge eye" because the salmon to bronze coloured wine resembles the red eye ring of a partridge. This wine is made from red wine grapes with a short maceration period and is pressed light red. The name is particularly common for the Vin Santo wine type. The DOC areas concerned are Vin Santo del Chianti, Vin Santo del Chianti Classico, Vin Santo di Carmignano and Vin Santo di Montepulciano. The French term Oeil de perdrix has the same meaning.
