Tenuta Casali "Petalo di Rosa" Rosato Rubicone '20
Italy—we love the food, we love to travel there, and we love that there is seemingly something new to discover about the country all the time, especially given its vast array of varieties, regions, and styles.
Tenuta Casali is a small, family-run winery located in Mercato Saraceno within the Romagna DOC. The Savio valley that Tenuta Casali lies within doesn’t have extensive swaths of arable land. The vineyards climb up from the river into the hills, surrounded by ancient forests on either side. You may recognize its name from some of the fabulous Sangiovese wines, or sparkling wines under the label Villa Zappi, that we have featured at the shop before.
Casali’s “Petalo di Rosa” is a relatively light style of rosé made from Sangiovese. Even with the very brief period of maceration that the wine undergoes, this rosé will remind you how powerful and aromatic Sangiovese is. Aromas of watermelon, fresh strawberry, and raspberry emerge first from the glass. These lively fruit notes are also found on the palate, with a mineral finish that is salty and mouthwatering, thanks to Sangiovese’s high acidity. Enjoy this wine with fresh fish, charcuterie, and salads, or drink it on its own to quench your thirst on a warm spring/summer day.
