ColleStefano ‘Rosa di Elena’ 2011


A solid argument for ‘never judge a wine by its label’. For a Verdicchio specialist, ColleStefano sure make a good Rosé.

A nose of strawberries, icing sugar and nectarines. Perhaps a suggestion of powdery mineral. Inviting. The palate is dry and shows off some sour cherry flavour and something like baklava (though it could just be the Syrian pop music I’m listening to. Omar Souleyman, if you must know). Almost a wine to out-Provence Provence. Refreshment, flavour and balance. Love that little bit of powdery grip from the tannins.

Simply put, great Rosé. Not showing signs of tiring either.

Excellent / 93 points
