The Wine: Poderi Crisci Rosé is produced from 100% Merlot grapes, picked purposefully a little earlier for a finer, lower alcohol wine in the style of a southern French or Italian Merlot Bianco.
A refreshing dry aperitif, great in summer, this rose also demonstrates great terroir characteristics, which give the wine a complexity and versatility to accompany many styles of cuisine.
Tasting Notes: A beautiful light pale colour, the nose is very fresh and pure. Floral notes, red forest berries and wild strawberry.
Good soft but full palate, with a nice underlying flintiness providing great structure, wild strawberry and a touch of quince followed by a hint of citrus peel on the very long and lively finish. A dry Rose in the best southern European style that works so well for lunch.
