We tasted: Parose’ Rose’ pas dose’ Millesimato 2011
The fruit and the elegant touch of Chardonnay melding into the decisive personality of Pinot Noir, is the impressive harmony displayed by Parosé. This wine is composed by 70% Pinot Noir – 30% Chardonnay grape varieties.
The aroma releases orange peel, rhubarb, and redcurrant, rose petals, shot through with a vein of pink pepper. In the mouth, a slight hint of tannin serves as an intriguing foil to the appealing crispness of the fruit, imparting a touch of youthful vigour to the wine. Supple and seductive, clean-edged and crisp, boasting a lengthy, sapid finish hinting of citrus, mixed nuts, and dried fruit, Parosé is truly a gourmet companion for every occasion.
