Broadbent Vinho Verde Rose N/V
Vinho Verde, Portugal
40% Borraçal, 30% Espadeiro, 20% Amaral, 10% Vinhão
Made exclusively from red grape varieties. A soft crushing and pressing make it possible to gently extract the juice. The rosé must is clarified resulting in a bright, clear wine. An intense aroma, very delicate with notes of red fruits… well-balanced with a soft and slightly fizz finish.

Juve y Camps Rose of Pinot Noir Brut Cava N/V
This Cava is beautiful, salmon-pink in color. On the nose, the delicate aromas evolve from notes of fresh red apple and strawberries to hints of honey white flowers and toasted almond. On the palate the texture is rich and creamy with a fine perlage. 91 Pts Wine Advocate

2009 Monti Montepulciano d’Abruzzo
Unfined and unfiltered to preserve all its fleshy, fruit flavors, this wine has a dark, inky, red color and intense aromas of ripe blackberries, cherries, and herbs with undertones of licorice, black pepper, and smoke. Generous, yet pure on the palate, this wine’s ripe, round tannins and delicate acidity make for an excellent overall structure.
