Wine Review: This orangish pink colored Rose from Balletto opens with a mild peach and orange like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, round and almost creamy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused strawberry with faint hints of red raspberry. The finish is dry and its refreshing acidity comes out more towards the end. This Rose would hold up with richer food. I was thinking a lobster ravioli with a light tomato vodka sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
