Natalie's Score: 88/100

This robust Italian rosé is made with Sangiovese and Canaiolo, the signature grapes of Chianti. The vines are dry-farmed, which adds extra depth and nuance to this refreshing rosé with lots of acidity. Terrific notes of wild strawberry and field flowers on the finish. Dry and crisp and medium-bodied. Great aperitif or sunset sipper. Dry, refreshing finish. Enticing floral aromas on the nose of this medium-bodied to robust rosé that pairs well with grilled seafood and veal.

Rosé food pairings: pasta salad with sun-dried tomatoes, tapas featuring marinated olives and chorizo, a charcuterie platter, salmon burgers.

Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Delightful floral and peach fragrances with a luscious palate of ripe peach and lemon. An elegant choice for brunch.
Natalie MacLean rated this wine as 88/100
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Delicate aromas of watermelon, peach, and pink grapefruit. Fresh flavours of green apple and ground cherry, with a touch of green basil.

Paired with summer salad rolls (carrot/tofu/avocado/cucumber/thai basil/cilantro) with spicy peanut sauce.
The grapes for this full-bodied Italian rose come from historic dry-farmed Tuscan vineyards. Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes are also used in the robust red wine Chianti. Pair this wine with grilled seafood. - Community Wine Reviews
