On the nose, this wine has a subtle combination of floral and red fruit aromas, primarily rose and red currant with a hint of anise. On the palate, the wine presents as medium-bodied, with a round fruity mouthfeel and complex structural nuances as the wine’s crisp acidity and integrated tannins vie for attention. After a prolonged and pleasant finish, you’ll want to sip and repeat. Ideal food pairings are bruschetta with balsamic glaze, pasta with a hearty red sauce (or even pesto), and pasta primavera. This wine is perfect for a warm day and mild barbecued meats, and just may convert a few white wine drinkers.
