Nino Franco “Rustico”

Nino Franco "Rustico"

This crisp, fresh sparkling Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore from Nino Franco is a bright straw-gold in color. It pours with a frothy mousse that rises high in the glass but soon falls back to a lighter but persistent bubble stream.

Perrin Réserve Côtes du Rhône Blanc

Perrin Cotes du Rhone Blanc

Perrin Réserve Côtes du Rhône Blanc is a pale-golden blend of the white Southern Rhone grapes Grenache blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Viognier. It offers a fresh, appealing honeydew melon scent with floral notes around the edges. Full and bright in flavor, it’s crisp and dry when cold, softening and adding a slight touch of fresh-fruit sweetness as it warms in the glass. Complex flavors begin with melon and a spritz of juicy lime, opening up to notes of peach and chalky minerality, with a hint of bitter peach pit with lime in a very long finish.

Pratsch Niederösterreich Rosé

Pratsch

Made with organic Zweigelt grapes, this pretty, pale salmon-pink Austrian rosé foams when it pours and settles back to a rim of tiny bubbles in the glass. Delicious aromas offer a mix of summer fruits – strawberries up front, backed by raspberry and melon – that carry over on the palate with an added note of pleasantly bitter peach pit. Carbonation shows as a light prickle, with light acidity serving to balance a subtle hint of sweetness. Gentle 11.5 percent acidity makes it a good option for summer sipping. Red berries linger in a moderately long finish. The wine is certified organic and vegan

The intriguing aromas of this pale, bright copper ros&eacute blend watermelon and red berries with subtle wildflowers and a hint of almonds.

An excellent Bourgogne Pinot Noir rosé, fine at the table or for summer sipping.
