The wine is a very light peach color, perfect for a dry rose for summer! The nose is a lovely combination of grapefruit, strawberry and orange blossom notes, with just a bit of minerality in the background. The taste is a lovely rush of sweet strawberry and tropical fruit up front that transitions to some wonderful floral notes midpalate. The finish is crisp, with mild acidity and a smooth, very dry ending.
Overall, I would rate this wine a solid 8.5, as it's one of my favorite roses for summer, perfect for sipping on the patio on a warm evening light tonight. This wine would pair well with a variety of summer fare, from caprese salad to lighter fish dishes, but tonight I am enjoying this wine with some pan seared sea scallops along with some bucatini tossed with broccoli rabe sauteed with garlic and olive oil topped with a bit of shaved parmesan. Sante!
