90 points Antonio Galloni: "(a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo Nero): Bright pink with an orange tinge. Complex aromas of strawberry, violet, botanical herbs and blood orange. Fresh and juicy, with tactile flavors of strawberry, fresh citrus fruit and pepper. Finishes with a hint of residual sweetness and outstanding lift. This is always one of Tuscany’s best rosato wines, and it’s no different this year. (ID)" (6/2015)
Negroamaro is a red wine grape variety native to southern Italy. It is grown almost exclusively in Puglia and particularly in Salento, the peninsula which can be visualised as the “heel” of Italy. Wines made from Negroamaro tend to be very rustic in character, combining perfume with an earthy bitterness. The grape produces some of the best red and rosè wines of Puglia, particularly when blended with the highly scented Malvasia Nera.

Cantine Marisa Cuomo makes wines that capture the essense of the rugged beauty of the Amalfi Coast. This Rosato is 50% Piedirosso and 50% Aglianico from south-facing terraces set 100-250 meters above the sea on extremely rocky soil of dolomite and limestone.
The Bandol Rosé of the Alps! Lauded as a reference point for the wines of Trentino-Alto Adige, Cantina/Kellerei Terlan makes this fresh rose, ready-to-enjoy now, from the red Lagrein grape. Winemaker Rudi Kofler notes: "Lagrein is a distinctive indigenous wine. It can be enjoyed as a full-bodied red but also, in the warmer months of the year, as a fruity rosé. Thanks to its fresh and uncomplicated character, the rosé is becoming increasingly popular among wine connoisseurs."

Owner/Winemaker of Cascina La Ghersa, Max Pastura, passionately directs the winery his family has run since 1928. The Piagè, or 'toll' in the Piemontese dialect, represents a killer value in 100 percent Barbera rosé. It sports a luminously clear ruby hue, with aromas of rose petals and raspberries. It's light on its feet thanks to fresh acidity, and finishes on an elegant note of ripe, supple fruit.

From the importer: "I take 'Rosadisera' to mean 'evening rosè,' which is the best idea I've heard all day. Nebbiolo Rosè from northern Piedmont is a relatively new kind of wine, but this tastes like a long-standing classic; beautiful pale pink color, aromas of wild strawberry, watermelon and pomegranate, fresh acidity, both refreshing and deeply flavorful. This is 100% Nebbiolo, made by 'saignèe' with one day of skin contact, fermented in stainless steel and bottled in the late spring. Grilled salmon, roast chicken, many pork dishes..."

Delicious pink wine, some of the first Nebbiolo rosé of the season. Pink like a perfect spring sunset. Pink like...an earthworm. Indeed, Proprietà Sperino, located in the historic district of Ori in northern Piedmont, also produces worm cast humus in its own production facility, Utilizing millions of Californian red earthworms. Serve cold.
A blend of black Pallagrello and Casavecchia grapes. Notes from the winery: "The wine is a beautiful bright pink color, with delicate scents with notes ranging from floral eglantine roses with hints of cherry and sour black cherry. Its flavor is characterized by a remarkable freshness supported by good acidity that nicely extends the persistence."
