La Valentina 2014 Spelt has aromas of freshly picked strawberries


La Valentina 2014 Spelt
Abruzzo, Italy

La Valentina was founded in 1990 in a village nestled in the Pescara hills of Italy's Abruzzo region. The brilliant pink rosé offers a nose of cherry, rose, pomegranate and strawberry, while a mouth of smooth fruit flavors and delicate tannins leads to a lingering almond finish.

Catch of the day: Pair this rosé with a strongly flavored fish, such as roasted mackerel.

Rating: 13.5/20

Price: $20
