In the glass, the first thing you'll notice is the wonderfully vibrant red berry and melon aromas virtually leaping from the glass. The fresh and lifted palate has broad richness yet retains a pleasing amount of acidity that keeps the wine lively. There's a nice touch of minerals and salinity on the palate that lingers in the long finish of melon and red berry fruit.
This pink thirst-quencher is super versatile and will shine with all of the classic Rosé pairings. We especially love it with spicy Cajun, Paella, and other saffron-infused dishes, grilled salmon and tuna, shrimp and grits, and of course, any ham preparations. For a real treat, serve this with one of the Abruzzo region's favorite dishes: herb and tomato baked fish -- cod, halibut, or even salmon would be fantastic.
Once again, I was blown away at the level of quality this coop offers for such a low price. Much like their terrific unoaked Chardonnay, the Vallevo Rosé is an honest, superbly made wine available at an unbeatable price.
