Nice dark color, aromas tell you this is not a Saignée, but a purpose made Rose. Rose petals, white nectarine and slight white peppercorns on the nose. Strawberries, stone fruit with a long smooth mouth coating finish. Awesome sipping and great with food. This is one of the best Rose I’ve had. Winner! 85% Nebbiolo 15% Vespolina. WHW — a month ago

Don’t be fooled by the label, looking like a closeout from the Olive Garden. This is serious shit, a gourmand wine full of character & finesse. Tar on the nose, palate is high acid with tremendous freshness. Angular at first, but with air the sweet cherry fruit moves to the forefront. Floral & foliage sing backup. Miles to go. Incredible value from Fass Selections @Lyle Fass — 6 days ago
On the btl, they say it’s the bees knees.
Well, Vespolina it tis’ and I may agree.
N: Liquorice, Rosemary, tar,that nose might lead you to think you’ve got a heavyweight. But no.
P: Big black cherries and that distinctly Italian acid lift. Slightly tannic, volcanic earth. Fun stuff at 13° — 8 months ago
