reading about, listening to others talking about it and sometimes tasting 🍷
after 2 ok-ish bottles that tried to recreate my memorable naples' falanghina experience this one finally nailed it.
whole grapefruit cut into pieces with flowers and green leaves 👃
grapefruit, brine and pepper 👄
pleasent spicy 🎯
extra point from a thorough 🇮🇹 tasting because of being outdoors and having it from a plastic cup (reusable, don't worry greta)
paired lovely with jahnun(tradional yemen dough feast), tomato salsa and humus mesabaha( breakfast of champions).
a picnic dirty martini substitute... much easier to pour.

a rose i bought from a small importer that brings mostly fantini wines who make wines in a lot of 🇮🇹 regions.
calalenta means 'night harvest'... so romantic
as the gorgeous bottle is.
pale pink 👀
melon, Peach as it gets warmer, lemon zest and honey cookies. subtle greeness all along👃
medium + acidity.
stone fruit, very ripe strawberries, citrus oil and white pepper. and those fresh herbs hiding somewhere in the back. no sweetness available👄
pleasent tingling medium 🎯
a well made rose.
balanced, complex and very enjoyable.
as it warmed up in the glass it changed completely.
at room temperature it was a raw, acidic yet pleasant wine.
great vfm (85 nis)
while having 🍕@ my parents in law i was too afraid to open a weird, cheap, hiding in the back cabin cab they had.
this came as a digestive afterwords while watching a funny French movie back home.
would probably work great with assorted cheeses and/or some nuts and crackers — 8 days ago
