A salmon pink hue, with radiant highlights and incredible youth. An intense, rich, bewitching bouquet of red fruit and citrus zest associated with more complex notes redolent of cedar and spring sap. The aromas evolve gently in the glass evolving from dried fruits, fresh almonds and frangipane, to notes of Tarte-Tatin, oven-baked apples and caramel. In tastings, the wine is soft and silky on the palate with a marvelous harmony of flavor and concentration of fruit.

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.
