I drink a lot of Ferrari’s 100 percent Chardonnay Brut, but this wine, the rosé equivalent, is quite different. It’s earthy, with an almost-iron core wound tight with minerals and crackling acid, and top-noted with pale berries, peach skin, and melon. But despite these subtle fruit notes and the anticipatory charms of its alluring, pearly salmon color, there is nothing fleshy about this wine. Instead it feels serious and grounded. It’s a traditional method rosé with a dignified structure and plenty of authority and weight, made from 60 percent Pinot Nero and 40 percent Chardonnay, hand-picked. The wine spent 24 months sur lattes and this bottle was disgorged in 2015. My best advice: Buy a case now, drink three bottles with holiday meals, drink another three next spring, and hold the rest for three years, minimum. 12.5% abv | $36 (sample) | Imported by Palm Bay

Bright medium pink orange. Medium bubbles give the wine a slightly rough texture. On the nose the wine has lovely red fruit nuances and tart raspberry notes on the palate. Lively on the palate, very good with food

Crisp, tart, light sweet fruit. Great for the amuse bouche.

Лососевый цвет. На старте мокрые камни, брусника, шерсть. Со временем аромат становится более сладким, появляются запечённая вишня, кофе с молоком. Среднетелое, во вкусе земляника, стручок ванили, красный апельсин. Пышное, с достаточно высокой кислотностью. Как ни крути, люблю Феррари розовое. 16,5/20

Copper/dark salmon pink color. Distinctive yeast/baked bread note. Strawberries. Rose petals. Dry. Bitter (grapefruit). Nice acidity. Quite rich on palate. Long aftertaste.

The label may say Ferrari but it tastes like a kia. Don't know why this is rated well at all.
