Riecine Rosé 2013
Pure and refreshing Rosé of immense class. Sangiovese demonstrating its beauty in Rosé form.
I am a huge fan boy of the Riecine estate. What Sean O Callaghan does with Sangiovese is just magical (apologies for the gushing praise, but you have to taste this stuff!) This is made with 100% organic Sangiovese with some Biodynamic principles being practiced. It is pale and bright, bone dry but with that beautiful soft Sangiovese fruit providing an approachable and moreish glass. It’s strawberry scented, but with a hint of the wild, in that there is no hint to strawberry sweetness. Extremely elegant and fine and built for pleasure in spades.

Dry Rosé from Provence.
At its best
Serve very chilled and watch the soft Sangiovese scent creep up on you as the wine warms up (if it stays in your glass that long!)
It’s perfect with smoked salmon done simply. Otherwise good conversation is the only accompaniment it requires.
