2019 vintage. Vulcanico is the entry level label for the Azores Wine Company. Heroic wine farming on infertile rocky volcanic soils where nothing else would grow with amazing results. This rosé is a multi-varietal field blend from grapes sourced from different growers. Very attractive nose combining fresh strawberries and red currants with flowers and iodine. Light and fresh with juicy red currant flavours, crispy acidity and a distinctive salinity and very good length. Amazing intensity of flavour with only 11,5 % abv. Fantastic value at 9,50 euros. Highly recommended. — 3 days ago
Extroverted elegance! Quite a bit of white nectarine/strawberry purée softly spread on toast and dipped in cream. Or mayhaps that it just feels like cream. Really the texture on this is exquisite. It is wearing elbow length gloves with a fuchsia satin dress and pearls. This wine is. Or maybe that’s what I feel like I’m wearing drinking it. — 11 days ago

Vintage 2019 | playful smell with minerals, a bit stinky (positive) if tasted blind I would have thought white wine, salty, what a joy! | Paired with lemon sole / limande | second day, hotter, and even more appreciation. Provence rosé is made for 30 degrees plus days. — 6 days ago
Champagne method. 100% rose. From alto Piemonte about an hour North of the Langhe. Producer’s main wine is gattinara.
extremely fine bubbles
Nose incredibly floral - roses. Savory. Incredibly elegant.
Palate is rainwater-infused cherries. A kiss of mint. A hint of savoriness and lovely balancing acidity. Saline. Some plum skin. Very vibrant.
