Pale hued, mineral salted and bone dry, tasted blind I'd swing to Provencal over Tuscany every time. And I'd be failing massively, every time, as this delicate and elegant rosé is a purpose-made Merlot dominant (Sangiovese splashed) rosé from the heart of Chianti Classico. The salted herbs/red fruits lures in this pale, elegant rosé, pouring a pale orange hue. Light florals weave throughout the subtle orange, wild raspberry, faint smoke and ample mineral on a lengthy finish. Though slight in frame (at 12.5 degrees), this carries ample intelligence and presence.
