2012 Murgo Brut Rosé Spumante Sicily

SKU #1276386 92 points Vinous

 Bright copper-tinged pink. Knockout aromas and flavors of red berries, nectarine, minerals, herbs and orange peel. Creamy but with juicy verve and lovely floral lift extending the stone and citrus fruit flavors on the long back end. Outstanding; this is the best Rosato bubbly from Murgo I have memory of.

90 points Wine & Spirits

 Nerello Mascalese grapes harvested for this wine underwent twenty-four hours of skin contact, imparting a pale salmon color and delicate flavors of red berries underlined by a fine minerality. Polished and elegant, it has the concentration to stand up to veal or rabbit.  (6/2016)

Wine Spectator

 Bright, citrusy acidity enlivens this balanced rosé, while the fine mousse carries a vibrant mix of white cherry, slivered almond, dried apricot and star anise flavors. A tang of salinity shows on the finish. (AN)  (7/2016)

While I've long enjoyed the Murgo Rose, I think this is without doubt their best to date. Made with one hundred percent Nerello Mascalese grapes harvested from their high altitude vineyards on Mt Etna, it offers a base of mineral and volcanic rock notes in combination with delicious spiced cherry fruit and a hint of orange citrus on the finish. It's bright, creamy and persistent and the price makes it irresistible. Rosé lovers will especially enjoy this.

A 100% Nerello Mascalese sparkling rose brings all the things I love about sparkling wines and all the things I love about Mt Etna wines to one delicious bottle. The wine is made in the classic method bringing the fineness and character of great champagne to the savory herbaceousness and lean minerality of the region. It is light on the palate but layered with floral notes, fresh herbs, and a hint of red berries.

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.
