Tasting Notes: Bonavita only produces two wines, and this insanely delicious rosato is one of them. Typically, Bonavita's rosatos are closer in body to a light red (think Poulsard), but the 2018 vintage (humid and wet) produced a wine that is light and bright on the palate. Citrus and salty tones mix with hints of raspberries. A long savory vein shows on the finish. Pair this really good rosato with fresh summer vegetable and fish dishes.
About the Label: Giovanni Scarfone has added an image of his father on the 2018 label to honor his father's memory.
