2012 Di Giovanna Rosato di Nerello Mascalese "Gerbino" (Previously $15)

SKU #1130629

Sicily is going through a rebirth when it comes to wine, and all over Sicily innovative producers are using indigenous varieties to coax Sicilian flavors out of their soil. The wines of Sicilian brothers Gunther und Klaus Di Giovanna are a perfect example. These are wines with character, balance, weight and a unique expression of their varietals rarely seen. Their Great-grandfather first planted here in 1860, and their father Aurelio reorganized the estate in 1985. The vineyards cover 1,150 feet to over 2,700 feet in elevation.

Delicate rose like aromatics waft gently from your glass and once one your palate this wines structure shows you this is no simple Rosé. The wine has exceptional balance and length while being layered with spice and minerality, truly a superb wine.

This is an intense rose. From the coral color shining out of the glass to the complex mix of aromas: clean sweat, cheese, strawberry, minerals, banana peel, grassy olive oil, and spice. The wine almost resembles a red wine in structure and flavors, but is as refreshing as any rose should be.

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
