2022 Vino Rosato

Cantine Elvio Tintero

Italy |  Piedmont

Discount Eligible $12.00

This crisp palate opener from Marco Tintero blends the juice from red-skinned Barbera—a Piemontese staple—with a touch of local white varieties that Marco grows for other bottlings: his Arneis and floral Moscato. While “lifelong winemaker” would be enough to decorate his résumé, Marco also happens to be a salumiere hobbyist, meaning he makes homemade pork salumi, which pairs particularly well with his Rosato. Seasoned with sweet spices like clove, cinnamon, and peppercorns, the salumi is the perfect foil to a Barbera-based quaffer like this one.

Anne Amalric of Domaine de Marquiliani wins the proverbial prize for making the palest rosés we import. So much so with her 2022 vintage, I wondered whether “Pauline” was, in fact, really a rosé! But then I tasted it: white strawberry, melon, sea spritz—there is no mistaking it. For this bottling, a majority of Sciaccarellu grapes with small amounts of Vermentino and Syrah chill down after harvest, then undergo a delicate press cycle, giving us a rosé whose color may be understated, but whose impact is both bold and balanced.

2022 Chinon Rosé

Charles Joguet

France |  Loire

Discount Eligible $26.00

Before Charles Joguet took over his family domaine in Chinon, he was a passionate painter and sculptor in Paris, retreating to a little studio in Montmartre. When his father passed away, he came to a crossroads: become a part-time vigneron among painters or a part-time painter among vignerons, and he chose the latter. The style of Joguet’s Chinon rosé has evolved over the years, and today it is crisp and bright, with bitter notes of ruby citrus, white pepper, and cherry pit. It’s the perfect wine for sipping while indulging in a long-lost, artistic pastime. Fun fact: a drawing Charles made of his mother’s historical home is featured on the label.
