Pair with 2010 Sangiovese Rosato : This vintage shows a nice balance of roundness and acidity. The nose presents juicy, bright red fruits – ostly strawberry and raspberry — along with a bit of strawberry Kool-Aid powder. The 2010 Sangiovese Rosato is both dry and fruity with flavors of bubblegum, fresh cherries and cream.
