2014 Nervi Rosa Coste delle Sesia

You don’t come across as many Italian rosés as you do French ones, so give this one a try! This happens to be from the oldest officially recognized winery in the Gattinara DOCG as well! Ruby red grapefruit, strawberries, red berries, and red florals on the nose. Lots of strawberries on the palate with a touch of Meyer lemon juice spritzed over the berries, touch of red apple skin, red and pink florals, and wait for it… strawberries, on the finish. Don’t drink this if you don’t like strawberries. But if you do, hop right on in! Quite lovely!

Se alla fine ti ritrovi con una noiosa e miserabile vita perché hai ascoltato tua mamma, tuo papà, i tuoi insegnanti, o i don dell’oratorio o qualche ragazzo in televisione che ti dice come fare le tue cose, beh, te lo meriti.
