    September 24, 2021 - Akin to a Rosato that pairs well with American Chinese food. 13% ABV.

    August 29, 2021 - My first Prëmetta and I'm a fan. I'm a sucker for "mountain wines", not just the place but the cool vibrancy I find in so many of them whether from Alto Adige or Savoie or further afield. As advertised this looks like a moderately dark rosé. Pretty sweet herbs and red berries, stemmy strawberry nose and direct follow through to the palate. Clean and energetic, stony with crunchy red fruits, low tannin and medium-high acidity, but not quenching.

    The low tannins, good acidity, and medium body herbal bright fruits make this a solid choice for many foods. This paired nicely with Ottolenghi's vegan paella from Plenty. The dish could star without tannins or extraction overtaking it. The aromatic saffron meshed well instead of competing with the nose.

    13% abv

    QPR is kind of tough in the upper-$20s. It is probably in part due to rarity (rather than novelty).

    Importer: Rosenthal

    Note: Per Ian d'Agata's comprehensive book Native Wine Grapes of Italy the technical formal name of the grape is Prié Rouge, but nobody calls it that in it's Valle d'Aosta homeland. (Another name we might see is "Neblù" as on Les Crete's sparkling bottling.)

    This grape is the offspring of Prié Blanc, which is the formal and common name, and an unknown partner. Prié Blanc isn't quite as rare and I've had a number of wonderful renditions.

    Quibble: Why did Grosjean have to go to the fatter and heavier bottle?
