Italian Rosato for Summer!

​As the title says, this 100 Sangiovese saw just a "few hours" maceration on the skins.  It is fresh and bright and made from certified organic grapes by Vittorio Navacchia and family.  Vittorio is here in town this week so ask me if you want us to come by and taste it with you.  And it is so inexpensive!

This has rapidly become our best selling rosato in just its second vintage back on the market after a long hiatus.  Crunchy is the new word for this type of ultr-light but flavorful rose`.  Or as the Italians say, "Crispy!".  The GD Vajra wines are still getting better every year and we are so happy that they are part of our family.

The Rosacherosanonsei Rosato from Favaro is a perennial favorite.  This one is no exception.  Nebbiolo rosato with a few other grapes thrown in, this is a rose` de saignee that is produced in miniscule quantities.  So little in fact that you can't find it anywhere else in the United States but through Rinascimento Wine Company.

Lunch with Francesca Vaira at Terroni DTLA . . . best lunch ever!
