Pietradolce Etna Rosato

Pietradolce rosato

The wines from Pietrodolce are pure Etna! The team only make wines from the native Etna grapes. This Pietradolce rosato has been made from the late ripening Nerello Mascalese, a red wine grape grown on the northern slope of Mount Etna. Some of these vines being bush vines.

This salmon hued Sicilian has a spicy twist to the raspberry and cherry fruit aromas. It is a wine that is as elegant as it is fresh. A dry, silky rosé like this is hard to resist. Particularly with that savoury herb length which also makes this an ideal food wine.

It’s very easy to imagine sitting under a pergola covered in vines and enjoying this with a hot smoked salmon salad.  Or a paper thin pizza with prosciutto, black olives and basil.

Quickie review «The fresh core of red fruit in this spicy salmon hued wine finishes with a silky flourish. »
