Rosé Mission!

I recently read an article in Bon Appetit magazine that inspired me to branch out and taste this interesting varietal that often gets confused w/ a cheapo White Zin that I may have loved back in high school. I am also a big fan of effervesence this time of year, so the article I referred to above really intrigued me because it focused on bubbly Rose!
I prefer a more dry than sweet style, but I'm not opposed to trying anything once. Last night I tried a delicious glass with my seared Tuna and summer green salsa (almost more of a pesto), and it paired perfectly. Directly from the menu: "A Negroamaro Rosato, Cantele 2007
-This Italian Grape Makes a Fabulous Rosé, Dry, Soft Tannins & Fresh Berry Flavors."

I'm open for any suggestions!! More of my tasting info to come...

  1. I'm enjoying my mission!! as of July 2009 I've had a few really great bottles of Rose! and as a dear friend and Wine enthusiast put it, "Rose is like a really nice light Red wine, only cold," that is so true and I love the complexity..what a treat for summertime.
