Make it an Italian rosé summer!

When you think rosé, your mind flies immediately to Provence and pale, perfumed, feminine wines. Nothing wrong with it, I love Provence rosé, but I love more exploring and drinking different styles. Italy produces also stunning rosé wines of all shades and grape varieties. Here a little selection from Norther Italy to Southern Italy that I showcased on my Youtube channel and on Instagram tv to give you ideas for these hot summer’s nights.

A good Rosato (the Italian for rosé wines) is a smart choice: versatile with food pairing (from salmon to chicken to pizza – try it with Margherita and buffalo mozzarella!), it is usually aromatic, but not too structured as a red wine can be, because of the lower tannins content.

As I mention in  the video: don’t be fooled by the color. Darker does not mean “stronger” or “sweeter”. There is this wrong idea around the color of rosé wines. Provence in the last years set the market standard to a very pale, delicate, peach or salmon pink. When a wine consumer sees on the shelves a bottle of Rosato del Salento (Puglia) with its intense cherry pink color, tends to consider it a light red wine more than a rosé. But it is a prejudice, the color is given by the time of maceration on the skins after the pressing.

Here a useful link about fundamentals you need to know about rosé wines.

    Wine competitions, medals and numbers: do they take away the pleasure of discovery?

    In fact, I believe a good part of the pleasure for a wine lover is in the phase of research, discovery, investigation. Being curious about a new grape, looking for its history, discovering the producers who keep it alive, reading about their business and then, after this journey, finally buying and tasting that wine, will be an immense joy, a cubic joy compared to the bottle rushed from the shelf because it had one hundred stamps on the label and therefore "it must be good".

    Implementing anti sexism courses in Italy, my proposal to the Minister for Equal Opportunities

    I started dealing with gender gaps, discrimination and sexism one day in mid-January 2020 when I decided that I didn’t want to put up with it anymore, that I didn’t want to “be superior”, “not to react” in order not to “lower myself to the level of the aggressors”. How many times as women have […]
