ROSÉ

Benessere 2011 Rosato
Napa Valley, California

Family-owned Benessere Vineyards takes its heritage to heart by focusing on Italian varietals. Their 2011 Rosato is composed of 69 per cent Sangiovese, 25 per cent Merlot and 6 per cent Sagrantino. Its bright pink color is achieved by limiting the amount of time that the juice remains in contact with the grape skins. Featuring floral and citrus aromas and sweet raspberry and nectarine flavors, enjoy this off-dry wine al fresco on a warm, sunny day.
