Bodegas Garcia de Olano, Rioja Rosado, La Rioja, Spain 2021
CHERRY RIPE RASPBERRY, ORANGE PEEL, ZESTY!
Tempranillo is clearly a man of many hats, and while its often oaky, aggressively ageworthy reds are the stuff that cellars’ dreams are famously made of, it does an absolutely bang-up job vinified as youthful rosé that’s overflowing with rich, ripe, red fruit. Oh yes, this is rosé for all seasons – food-friendly, fantastically flavorful, and as cozy as it is crisp. So bask in the warm, rosy glow of a cold, refreshing glass of this lively elixir from Rioja.
Serving Suggestions: Unagi-shrimp tempura rolls w/ avocado & cucumber (topped w/ tobiko & sesame seeds). Pizza Margherita.
