Vintage: 2019 Colour: Rosé Style: Dry
Producer: Santa Margherita
Description: This is a brand new wine from a well-known winery, and in a bottle shape many of you will recognize from their Rosé fizz. This, however, is still, pale orange-peach hue, and pretty much dry, with orange, pear butter, raspberry and a fine riff of spice on the medium bodied (13 degrees) palate. Groppello, barbera, sangiovese and marzemino from Lake Garda is partially crushed and partially macerated, with the two parts fermented and aged separately in stainless for a few months on lees before the final blend. Though shorter on the finish, this is quite an elegant show, and a welcome mature move from this classic Italian.
Ageing Potential: Drinking Now
A lovely, medium-bodied Italian rose with aromas of small field berries and strawberries. Perfect for sipping on the patio on its own or with fresh seafood.
