2018 Rocca di Montegrossi Rosato

SKU #1430965 91 points Vinous

 Medium pale pink. Floral strawberry, herbs and violets on the inviting nose. Then a slightly candied quality and a hint of residual sweetness diminish the vibrancy of the floral and juicy red berry flavors but contribute to a smooth, round mouthfeel. The finish is long and very precise, with obvious mineral elements emerging. 100% Sangiovese. (ID)  (5/2019)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 A rosé of pure Sangiovese, this is bright and refreshing, with persistent, tangy cherry flavors and orange zest hints. More than just a quaffer, it takes on pleasant herbal notes that suggest a match with fresh tomato-and-basil bruschetta.  (8/2019)

K&L Notes

Rocca di Montegrossi produces one of the best Rosatos on the market, year in and year out. Made from primarily Sangiovese, this is full bodied yet crisp, with bright cherry fruit aromas and flavors accented by earth spice. Solidly built, with a mineral-tinged finish ilaced with hints of savory herb, this is a more structured style of rose and the perfect accompaniment to a variety of dishes featuring tomato-based sauces or braises.

Being both an Italian rosato and Sangiovese enthusiast, this is a first-class winner in my books. There is a pretty profile of fresh strawberries, tart cherry and a hint of orange on the palate, towards the finish. This has a ton of personality and flavor but remains crisp and dry. Have this with grilled vegetable salad.

This is our best selling Italian rose and it continues to impress as well as gain new fans. The winery makes this from 100 percent Sangiovese that's held briefly in stainless steel and then bottled. It's crisp and light on its feet yet has just the right balance of flavor and texture. One of Italy's best Rosatos.

From Rocca di Montegrossi and simply put, their best effort yet! This robust rosato has a light salmon pink color and fascinating aromas of ripe wild mountain strawberries, and I found a hint of mandarin zest. It's fresh and lingering on the palate with a very dry finish.
