Centine Rosé Toscana 2013

Centine Rosé Toscana 2013

Brian Says

Nice bouquet of grapefruit and honey, smooth flavors of bread, hints of nut, with more grapefruit on the finish. This was a nice, dry Rosé featuring a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet. Flavors intensified with a delicious Fontina, highlighting more of the fruit. A refreshing, well-crafted Rosé.

The more Rosés I sample, the more I like them. This Centine Rosé is no exception. From its aromas suggesting flowers and nuts, to its dance on the palate of freshly-cut grapefruit and a tiptoeing finish of dairy, this wine paired exceptionally well with Fontina cheese, which brought out a delightful crispness that seemed to capture summer with each sip. My husband would argue that this is good with or without food, but I think Centine Rose, like almost all Old World wines, tastes best with food.
