The latest in our series of Tasting Notes is a wine which is produced using Croatina, Barbera and Uva Rara grapes. These three grapes represent the soul of Oltrepò Pavese, an important wine region in the region of Lombardy which borders Liguria and Emilia-Romagna.
The semi-sparkling Montelio Rosé perfectly expresses the characteristics of these grapes when vinified as a rosé wine and it has a bright cherry color that makes it distinctive.
Its bouquet is fine and intense. During the olfactory exam, we find notes of strawberry, red currant and cherry as well as subtle floral notes of wisteria while spicy aromas of black pepper and nutmeg enhance the pleasure of its nose.
In the mouth, it is well balanced and full-bodied; its pronounced freshness, light effervescence and a slight tannin make it a particularly pleasant wine and which is easy to drink.
