Randy Fuller

This Italian rosato lights up the glass beautifully in a blaze of cherry red. The nose - the expected cherry, strawberry, cassis notes - has an undercurrent of tar and is draped in a muscular earthiness. The fruit flavors come along on the palate bright and fresh, with a beautiful acidity. The grapes, by the way, are Montepulciano with limited skin contact and steel vinification and aging.
