Pizzini Rosetta 2016

Will the rise of rosé never end? We need a new apocalyptic name, like “Sauvalanche!” Anyway, when it’s done right, it’s done right. This Italian style example is made from Sangiovese grapes.

Pizzini, Rosetta, King Valley, 2016


Smells of sweet little rose petals, light strawberry skins, a touch of yoghurt and red currants.  Super crisp on the palate, with plenty of red fruits and some steel wool austerity. This is how you want to drink the rose, Sangiovese doesn’t come on too strong with initial fruit sweetness and the almost peach ice tea character is damn refreshing. Nothing earth shattering, but feel free to leave the bottle.

RRP: $19

Alc: 12%
