A perennial favorite, her rosé of Canaiuolo is yet another testament to just how talented of a winemaker Elisabetta is. In high toned mineral clinging refreshment, of little red fruits and pale salmon color, this is absurdly good for the money. This is another fan favorite, with many folks buying a case of this, blind, every year……this is from the stellar ’16 vintage, one that Elisabetta tells me may be the finest rosé since the 2010. I’m allocated this wine, so get it while the gettin’ is good folks…..
In her words: “From red-stemmed Canaiolo grapes with the aromas of white grapes and the richness of red grapes. A free-run must that ferments slowly, and is bottled as soon as the sugars have fermented, to maintain its freshness.”
Food pairings: “The perfect aperitif, if possible in a Champagne flute. A delicately colored rosé with floral aromas, full soft flavors, and a savory finish.”
