Hey Nashville, what are you drinking this summer?
I’m obsessed with rosés this summer, so this wine recommendation came easily. Rosés are no longer one-dimensional, sweet and forgettable.
Molino a Vento Rosé 2013 is a fresh, uncomplicated rosato from Sicily made from 100% Nero d’Avola, the black grape of Sicily. It’s light rose/pink color is clean and bursting with red and black fruit flavors of juicy cherries and raspberries. This invigorating wine pairs with a variety of foods especially those from the grill such as chicken,tuna or salmon along with fresh, crisp fruit or vegetable-based salads.
Rosés are especially food friendly. They have the acidity of crisp white wines yet the fruitiness of red wines with red and dark berry flavors and aromas.
Having the opportunity this summer to taste examples that are soft, balanced and elegant, I recommend stocking up and sipping before the summer comes to an end!
You can find this mouth-watering Sicilian rosé at Grand Cru Wine and Spirits for around $10. Serve chilled!
