A new vintage of Rosso Fresco is out and we are stoked! So, we open the bottle, pour a glass...swirl, sniff, taste...and "Wow...Fun, Fresh, Delish and oh darn good!" These are the first words out when writing the notes about our new 2019 vintage of Rosso Fresco and have been for years. Rosso Fresco is an easy-going red blend whose varieties and proportions change with each vintage. The 2019 version is comprised of 75% Merlot, 12% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Dornfelder and 3% Syrah. There are beautiful high-toned aromas and flavors of red cherry, red raspberry, red plum, red current, spice and earth. This dry red wine is medium-bodied, has moderate (just under 12%) alcohol, balanced acid, very soft, silky tannins and a juicy persistent finish. Rosso Fresco is a playful, full-flavored, fun, friendly red wine that pairs well with pastas and just about any fish, fowl or four-legged food you serve with it.
