On the nose; slight funky barnyard nose. Hint of v/a. Pink grapefruit, overripe orange citrus, peach skin, pink roses

On the palate; pink grapefruit, overripe orange citrus, peach skin, pink grapefruit, pink roses, beautiful acidity, strong delicate powdery chalkiness and a nice round finish.

Photos of; the Estate Sangiovese vines, a look of how they protect the wine in clay pots before they apply the terra-cotta, water & hay mixture and the Sangiovese fruit almost ready to harvest.

Unusual but likeable! 100% Cinsault. Light to medium bodied red, I wouldn’t call it a rosé. 2017.

We live this wine. Not often a store tasting works on me but had never seen the grape bottled solo and loved it. Highly recommend.

Ok rose. Lighter than others from Chile/Argentina, but not as glou-glou as the french.

Girlfriend loves it, I hate it....somewhere in the middle! Too acidic for me, she loves the taste.
