Terredora di Paolo Rosaenovae Rosato 2009
|Brand||Terredora di Paolo|
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Rosanovae Rosato (Aglianico) is one of the most interesting roses I tasted this year. Dried roses, berries, spices, minerals and licorice are some of the notes that emerge from this ethereal, deceptively medium-bodied wine. Aglianico is best-known as the grape used for Taurasi, one of Italy's most powerful reds, but here it shows great promise as a unique, totally beguiling rose. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2011.
Wine EnthusiastThis is an interesting but not perfectly balanced rosé from the celebrated Irpinia area of Campania in southern Italy. The nose of this pretty, pale pink wine opens with sweet aromas of berries and roses. But the mouthfeel shows sharp sourness.
