Chilean Rosé Wines

Calcu Rosé Reserva 2011, Chile  $9.99 Kills White Zin on Contact! Yes, this is pale and pink but it is also one of the best DRY Rosés we have offered in quite some time: 55% Malbec, 35% Syrah, 10% Petite Verdot and bursting with fresh watermellon, berry and floral notes but with all that held in check by a firm dry finish and a hint of amaro that almost reminds us of our beloved Aperol.

Puglia Rosé Wine

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...
