White Zinfandel was both a curse and a godsend. On the plus side the sweet white zin introduced people to the joys of wine. From beer swigging college parties, sweet frozen drinks and sweet soda drinkers found the world of wine by dinking inexpensive White Zinfandel. Standing at a bar or sitting at the dinner table with a wine glass in hand always looks elegant. Because of White Zinfandel’s reputation as an inexpensive sweet wine had put a curse on dry rosé wines that have been produced around the world for centuries. Real wine drinkers still enjoy a nice rosé on a warm evening.
Costello di Ama, Rosato, 2012 is made in the red wine region of Italy’s Chianti Classico. A blend Sangiovese and Merlot, the grape juice gets its color from having contact with the grape skins for a short period of time to have a nice salmon colored tinge. The aroma is filled with fresh fruit, especially orange and peach. The palate is more pronounced with tart cherry, compliments of the Sangiovese and strawberry notes from the Merlot. With a short finish this is the perfect rosé to sip while preparing dinner of with a nice plate of salumi.
