Palamà Salento Rosato Metiusco 2011, Puglia
Domaine Whott??? Our favorite Rosé EVER! Intense color (red with bluish glints) and aroma of championship roses (the flower), crisp, food friendly flavors of cranberry, pomegranate and cherry, leading to a BONE dry, minerally finish. If you could only have one wine this one might be the one to do the job: from seafood antipasti to spicy carne asada, it rules the table. This so impressed Squadra WINE EXPO at VinItaly that we had to go back and retaste it every day for a week. VERY limited (this is getting wicked famous in Europe and is allocated now).
