It is boiling out there and the best thing I can think of to cool down is to drink lots of Italian Rosato by the pool.
I have just a few cases left of the following:
Favaro 2013 ROSACHEROSANONSEI Rosato (VdT) 180/15
90% Nebbiolo, 10% Syrah Hand-harvested grapes are fermented at cool temperatures and aged in stainless steel tanks for four months. This wines has great acidity and nice tension that backs up a fullish rosato with nice mineral notes. Aromatics are floral with strawberry and raspberry flavors seasoned with mint.

Cirelli 2013 Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo DOC 144/12
The Cirelli Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo 2013 is tasting great right now. Lots of cherry fruit and acidity and a little bit of that salty terroir thing going on, too. It is also a critter wine, notice the beautiful butterfly, which I am sure is recognizable to all as the sign of freedom and transformation (okay, I am reaching here . . .) but whatever. The wine is good.
The grapes for this wine were grown specifically to be direct press rose` and that has some advantages. Lower alcohol and higher acidity would be the most obvious. And now that the weather is getting really hot, and our rose` season is finally upon us, this is a great wine for those hot days.
Ask for them from your local retailer or email me and I can tell you the best way to get them to your door..
