Keepin’ it classy today with a nice lil’ Rosso. Red currants, cherries, plums, spices, and nutmeg on the nose. Similar yummy notes on the palate. What else could you possibly want from a Rosso? Stay thirsty, friends!

2015 Tenuta Fanti Rosso di Montalcino

A lovely little Saturday with some Rosso di Montalcino on paw. Red and black cherries, licorice, and fruit with a bit of gumminess on the nose. Loads of cherries on the palate with licorice. Rather full for a Rosso.

La Kiuva Rosé de Vallée

La Kiuva Rosé de Vallée

Sittin’ pretty with my Italian rosé, produced via the saignée method. And this one is fresh for a thirsty Thursday. Peppered strawberries, white cherries, and cranberries on the nose. White and red strawberries on the palate with both tart and ripe cherries and cranberries. Fresh. Ripe. Versatile.

2017 Cà Maiol Chiaretto Valtenesi Rosé

Happy hump day! Time to knock back some rosé, amirite? Strawberries, white and yellow cherries, and white peach on the nose. The slightest effervescence on the palate with cherries, raspberries, strawberries, some more white peach, and a hint of stony minerality on the finish.
