Introduction

Second installment of wine-pages rose offline organised by Mark P, accompanied by antipasti, pasta with ragu and Italian cheeses

Flight 1 - Aperitivo (1 Note)

Flight 2 - Frizzante and Spumante (2 Notes)

  • 2017 Paltrinieri Lambrusco di Sorbara Radice 88 Points

    Italy, Emilia-Romagna, Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC

    Quite pale. A little animale at the start, becoming more floral and citrus-influenced. Unassuming and with nice, juicy acidity, this is a great food wine.

  • 2015 Gusbourne Brut Rosé 89 Points

    United Kingdom, England, Kent

    Gorgeous pink colour with vigorous mousse. Very red-fruited on the palate, fey and appealing, some apple notes. Would be great to quaff while mingling on a lawn in some summer sunshine. Might improve with more time in bottle.

Flight 3 - South Africa & Provence (2 Notes)

Flight 4 - Unusual Italians (2 Notes)

  • 2018 Frank Cornelissen Susucaru Rosato 87 Points

    Italy, Sicily, Terre Siciliane

    Skin contact blend including Nerello Mascalese. Wonderful deep orange/red colour, like a Negroni. Cidery, volatile nose. There's some resemblance to Negroni on the palate, too, although perhaps one mixed with Vimto rather than gin - bittersweet watermelon, cherry drops, red apple, and probably a number of other things too. Oddly precipitous finish.

  • 2014 Paride Chiovini Sizzano Eros 85 Points

    Italy, Piedmont, Northern Piedmont, Sizzano

    Made from Nebbiolo. Porty, redcurrant nose. Quite chewy and acidic, some sweet strawberry developing. Past its best?

Closing

A great tasting despite the relatively modest scores, with all wines showing well even if a couple were not to my taste.
