19/10/2020 – Saint Max and Terre Nere Rose Wines

(2020) From the volcanic slopes of Etna, this is 100% Nerelo Mascalese from 25- to 60-year-old bush vines. It has an orangey hue to the pink colour, and a fascinating nose, immediately quite earthy and complex, plenty of red berries and a ripe, peachy tone, but somehow quite savoury. In the mouth it treads a fine balancing line between that charming and sweet fruit character, and something more gastronomic and juicy, but it's dry and really quite long. Watch the video for more information and food matching ideas.
(2020) A delightful, dry Côtes de Provence rosé that's mostly Grenache with 25% Cinsault, 8% Syrah and 7% Carignan, the nose is crammed with small red berry fruits, cranberry and redcurrants, a touch of lemon rind too. Some lees contact in tank lends texture on the palate, and it is super dry and tangy-fresh, a real sense of citrus juiciness is mouth-watering, in a delicious and gastronomic rosé perfect with a salad Niçoise or seabass or bream.
