2005 Sangiovese Rosato

Our Sangiovese Rosato comes from a long line of award winning rosés. This vintage scored 91 points in the California State Fair and was awarded Best of Class of the Sierra Foothil ... morels appellation. This wine contains the predominant grape found in the Chianti wine of Italy, but ours is light pink with crisp citrus and strawberry aromas and flavors. It is a dry, well-balanced wine that should be served slightly chilled. It is wonderful for sipping when you want a light, fruity patio or picnic wine. It also goes well with lighter dishes such as shell fish, chicken and turkey. This is a great holiday wine when you are trying to please a variety of different palates. It is definitely a people pleaser. For a surprise, also try it with spicy food.
