Steely amber color. Aromas and flavors of cranberry, pomegranate candies, sour strawberry candies, and pine nuts with a supple, dry light-to-medium body and an effortless, interesting, relaxed finish with notes of tart raspberry, tomato leaf, and merlot rind parmesan with no oak flavor. A unique Italian Rosé that would be a good accompaniment to a cheese course.

Regional Rose

Wine Glass Rose.jpg
Serve in a Rosé Wine Glass
Rosé wine is made in many regions in Italy. Among the most famous are Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Negroamaro from Puglia and Sangiovese rosé from Tuscany. These are quite rich and rather dry and offer excellent complexity; they are wonderful alternatives to red wines during the warm weather and can stand up to many red meats. Inexpensive versions from the Veneto and Friuli regions tend to be lighter and a bit sweeter.
