WINES FR FRANCE COTES DU RHONE ROSE 75CL
Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes / Wine Colored Roses
Made from a blend of fruit harvested from four Savigny vineyards: Les Lavieres, Les Narbontons, Les Vergelesses and La Dominode. Each vineyard's wine is made individually, before being matured in 20% new French oak, then blended to perfection before bottling. Typical of Savigny, this wine is heady and aromatic, with notes of rose petals and beetroot giving complexity to the core of redcurrant fruit. The palate is more robust with savoury, fine-grained tannins. Delicious with cold meat salads or creamy French cheeses.
The Piedmont region of Northern Italy, surrounded by the Alps, is home to Italy's third most planted grape variety - Barbera. Barbera d'Asti has the most vines, with many of the vineyards planted on the lower slopes and in sheltered areas resulting in fresher styles. Intense aromas of red cherries, vanilla, rose petals and spice leap from the glass, with the intense, powerful palate exhibiting an elegant balance of fruit and tannin to a long, smooth and crisp finish. Drinkable now, matched with salumi or antipasti, or aged for up to 6 years. The wine will benefit from being decanted before drinking.
