Rosé season is in full swing and the next stop on my sipping tour is Tuscany with two lovely wines from the organic vineyards of Fattoria Sardi.
Fattoria Sardi Rosé 2015 ($22)
A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Ciliegiolo; this charming wine is an elegant thirst quencher. A beautiful soft shade of salmon, this crisp rosé perks up the palate with subtle but appealing flavors of raspberry, roses, and a touch of citrus. With great minerality and a finish that lovingly lingers, this is a great wine to serve as an apéritif and with light salads, antipasti, and fresh seafood.
Fattoria Sardi "Le Cicale" Rosé 2015 ($28)
Mostly Sangiovese (90%) with small amounts of Trebbiano, Vermentino, and other white varietals; Le Cicale is dry and medium-bodied with pronounced flavors of red fruits, minerality, and a hint of salinity. Le Cicale has enough structure to pair with more substantial foods like herb-marinated chicken, shellfish, and charcuterie & cheese.
If you're planning a trip to Tuscany, Fattoria Sardi offers accommodations at their wine resort. Until then, sip a bit of Tuscany wherever you are with their delicious wines!
