Fresh fruit aromas of just-picked strawberries, ripe papayas and honeydew melons combined with frosty lemon sorbet.
Made using Sangiovese grapes, I tasted tangy Rainer cherries, sun-kissed strawberries and Meyer lemons, along with subtle notes of minerality. While this rosé is dry, it finishes with playful flavors of kiwi and sweet tart candy.
Food pairing suggestions:
Cucumber sandwiches, Kung pao chicken, scallops with browned butter and prosciutto.
