Notes from Martha:
"The Negroamaro Rosato is my favorite wine I’ve made to date. With it’s racing acidity, concentration, and ample body, I believe it will show balance and beauty at any point in its lifetime, so drink now if you’d like to experience more of its fruit, or age as you please to continue to accentuate its body. This wine has an autumnal thread running through it. I am transported to a rocky mediterranean coast, where fall is still warm, I can smell sea air, prickly pears heavy with ripeness, and herbs drying in the golden autumn sun."
