IPPOLITO Ciro Rosé 'Mabilia' 2016

For those filling out their list of grapes tasted, or just for someone looking for a delightful rosé, here is an opportunity to taste a gaglioppo from Italy’s Calabria. A gorgeous mango color with a very light fizziness. Taste it fast because that tickle dissipates after the first sip. A fruity nose of condensed ripe flavors - candied apple, cherry lollipop, fresh strawberry, peach juice and a high note of sweet green herb. Just a hint of residual sugar keeps the palate perfectly balanced. Full bodied for such a pretty rosé, flavors of peach and strawberry, and a long finish of white tea and spicy clover. An approachably sophisticated rosé perfect for vacations to the Italian Riviera or just pretend vacations. (Best 2017-2018) - May, 2017 (JH)
