Rosado Reference

I've heard the term rosado used to describe wrapper leaf. Can you tell me what this means?
Posted: February 3, 2014

Short answer: rosado means 'rose-colored' in Spanish.

As applied to wrapper leaf, the term describes the reddish tint of some Cuban-seed wrapper. This tint is most pronounced in Cuban-seed leaf grown in Ecuador, but it's also common to the wrapper grown for Fuente Fuente OpusX cigars in the Dominican Republic.
