2017 Masi Rosa dei Masi delle Venezie IGT

2017 Masi Rosa dei Masi delle Venezie IGT

Feeling festive now that spring has sprung so enjoying this Italian rosé to celebrate! This rosé has some of the grapes dried like in the Valpolicella Amarone method. Ripe raspberries, cherries, and almost blackberries on the nose, which is just bursting with fruit. Cherries, strawberries, and raspberries on the palate. Very fruity and very nice. Great value.

NV Fratelli Lunelli Ferrari Metodo Classico Maximum Brut Rosé Trento

Oh heyyyyy. Just chillin’ with my paw around some sparkling rosé. NBD. This one was disgorged in 2017. Bready on the nose with red jam, a hint of nuts, and biscotti. More red fruit and biscotti on the palate. A bit cloying.

2016 Damilano Barbera d’Asti DOCG

Spending a pretty stoic Sunday with this Barbera d’Asti. Black and red cherries, blackberries, and a hint of clove on the nose. Pretty much the same on the palate with a bit more red cherry on the finish. Cheers!
