ROSATO OF PINOT GRIGIO - TERRE SICILIANE IGT ITALY
This pink Pinot Grigio features all the good stuff we love about rosé, with a distinctly Italian flair and a unique taste profile. Clean and fresh, with citrus and floral aromas and a sour cherry, dried cranberry palate, time to open the garage and take this baby for a joy ride!
The terroir of coastal Sicily is prime Rosé territory, perfectly adapted to produce fresh, medium bodied, fruity wines with terrific international appeal. Sicily’s Rosé vineyards are refreshed by Mediterranean breezes, overlooking secluded rocky bays and profiting from the long, warm summer days – can you taste it already?
Berry, berry and more berry – Lilo is succulent, so aromatic and incredibly focused on pure berry flavor. The entire gamut is in each glass – cherry, cranberry, raspberry…ahhh! A surprisingly full body and lingering finish also help define this glorious Italian rosé.
Gazpacho, nicoise salad, seafood bisque, ratatouille, shrimp cocktail, roast chicken with rosemary.
Sicilian wine is trending way up these days, a fixture on any hip wine list the world over. As the spotlight shines brighter, young producers are reinventing old, stale traditions and producing exciting, brand new styles and finding great success in the international marketplace.
Such is the case with this pink Pinot Grigio. A grape that until recently was strictly the domain of Northern Italy’s great still wines, this Sicilian rosé is light, fresh, and fruit-driven – a real contender for the title of the next big thing in Italian wine. What a treat it will be for Costco’s customers to find out for themselves – what is the future of Italian white wine – white, Red, pink or sparkling? While there is no right answer, in this case, the journey is more important than the destination.
