Rose can be so easy to drink and has become more of a winemaker’s pet project. As a rose can be made from any variety it has allowed some creativity to emerge.
Unico Zelo Rosato 2014
I have written in my notes Grenache and Sangiovese based? Well I had one right but not the other as this is a Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Grenache and Merlot based wine done in a saignee style. The nose is sweet and is dominated by the Grenache notes mixed with a little earthier moment. These confected cherries and creamy flavours are very evident on the palate which feels like more of a light red than a rose.
