2013 ROSA DEI FRATI, Ca dei Frati. Veneto, Italy

Bin:  360

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

The official designation is ‘Riviera del Garda Bresciano’ – in other words it’s rosé from Lake Garda, near Verona (beautiful town, renowned as the setting for Rome and Juliet)

Grape variety:

60% Groppello, 15% Marzemino, 15% Sangiovese, 10% Barbera

Producer:

The Dal Cero family, for many years the leading estate in the area. They also make a delicious white ‘Lugana’ – look out for it in good London restaurants

Maturity potential:

Drink within 2 years

Old Bridge rating:

The complete rosé: pale and dry; somehow combining complexity and intensity without losing drinkability. Rosé tends to go one way or the other (light and simple or complex and a bit too heavy) and rarely gets the balance this right

Food match:

Inevitably one thinks Italian – this could be one of the few wines to cope with the old classic of Parma ham and melon; or even better with the rather posher ‘Piedmontese peppers”
