Tasting Notes: This is a fun wine! The light and juicy tannins are reminiscent of Frappato or Pinot Noir. Violets and ripe, stewed cherries dance on the tongue. It is zippy and crisp similar to the Mediterranean Sea climate in which the Rossese grows.

About the Grape Rossese: Rossese is an excellent yet rarely seen grape variety found on the Ligurian coast of northwestern Italy. Rossese is known for producing light red wines that are fresh, fruity and best consumed young.
