Love it or hate it, rosé has made a huge comeback and is here to stay for the foreseeable future. We meet so many wine lovers that are anti-rosé, but we're pretty sure there's a rosato out there for you. Italy offers such a wide range of rosés that it's the perfect stomping ground for newbies. See below for our guide to Italian rosato!
MARCO DONATI, TRENTINO
$250.86/CASE OF 12 ($20.91/BTL)
Varietals: 100% Lagrein
Rosé all day! The time has come to stock up on rosato for the Summer. This Lagrein based rosé is dry and elegant without being too fruit forward. It's very versatile when it comes to food pairing and will go nicely with roasts, chicken stews, veal, pork, soups, and appetizers. It is also one of the few rosè wines that goes well with fish dishes.
FATTORIA LA RIVOLTA, CAMPANIA
$305.10/CASE OF 12 ($25.43/BTL)
Varietals: 100% Barbera
We love Piemontese rosatos because you can pretty much guarantee that they'll be nice and dry, and this rosé is no exception. It's simultaneously dry but also presents a beautiful ripe cherry aroma. Perfect for that hot summer afternoon.
