2016 Rosato Spumante Extra Dry “Il Rosa”


2016 Rosato Spumante Extra Dry “Il Rosa” Sommariva - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


The first gourmand to eat an oyster or an artichoke must have been truly brave, but imagine the delight of discovering the deliciousness of a wine with effervescence. I often hear of some folks’ trepidation about needing an “occasion” to serve a sparkling wine, but my feeling is that we owe it to those adventurous souls who paved the way for us, especially with a joyous Rosato like this one. With delicate bubbles skipping across the surface, fresh aromas of strawberries and golden raspberries bursting forth, and a lively sweet-tart finish, we must have no qualms about celebrating the existence of the sparkle itself! —Jennifer Oakes
