Rose Top Of Mind This Week: Terredora Irpinia DOC Rosato Roasaenovae 2014


I tasted this wine back in February during a seminar at Vino 2016. It was the first time I tried this wine but Terredora di Paolo isn’t a new winery for me. I like all of their wines actually. This wine is made from 100% Aglianico, the signature grape in the area. When made into a bold red wine, it is very tannic and needs a lot of time before it is ready to drink. As a Rose’ however, Aglianico shows another face. It is fresh and charming with great salinity and minerality. It is bright and elegant on the palate. It would be great with a host of first courses and fish dishes as well as carpaccio. Perfect for this time of year, I wish I had many cases in my home to have at my fingertips.
