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.

    Moscato d’Asti Docg: prejudices at home, success in the U.S., the search for quality

    Moscato is one of the most "bullied" grape varieties at home, in Italy, and one of the most exported in the world, especially in the States where the most appreciated version is the low-alcohol, sugary and effervescent one typical of the Asti area. It was there that I recently went to discover the history of this wine often associated with festive moments, but unjustly subject to the prejudice of being a wine suitable only for those who are not very wine-knowledgeable or experienced. The reality is quite different, especially thanks to the investments made by producers and the Consortium, which in recent years have focused on quality and on clarifying styles by distinguishing between the Moscato d'Asti Docg and Asti Docg appellations, sparkling, dry and sweet versions.

    Wine is more than natural: the creative genius of Hans Terzer and the new Appius

    Wine is the result of the magical combination of many elements: nature, vine, terroir, but there is a factor which is too often considered as secondary, in particular in this latest fashion of "natural" wines.
