Although the mark of this wine says that it’s a nerello mascalese, that’s not the only grape that’s in here. There’s also prosecco in this wine and I really reckon of it as a rosé prosecco because nerello mascalese is primarily used for affect. The nerello mascalese grapes in this wine come from Sambuca, Sicily while the prosecco comes from the Veneto province in northern Italy.
To be trustworthy, I don’t taste a lot of rosé wines. It’s not that I’m too manly to drink pink, in fact I really like a excellent rosé each now and then. It’s just that there are so many options when it comes to wine that rosé often doesn’t make it to the top of that list. But subdue, I was excited to try this wine.
The nose is pretty forceful, not giving much intensity to the aromas. But there is some apple and a slight floral frangrance to it. The palate also suffers http://1000-facts-about-wine.com from some over-subtlety. It offers soft apple and pear flavors with a bit of yeast and salt on the end. There aren’t any off flavors, so I wouldn’t say it’s a terrible wine it’s just that it’s such a subtle wine that it doesn’t have much wow look. If you prefer a more delicate bubbly, you may delight in this one. But for me, it was just “meh.”
