To make this rule-breaking wine, the grapes’ skins are removed as soon as possible so that little to no color is transferred to the wine. Intrigue your guests with this rose gold-colored wine.

We enjoyed this wine at Wine Disciples Enoteca with paired with the dishes described below. The best part? After having a three ounce taste and falling in love, we could walk right next door to their wine shop and buy a bottle to take home. Now that’s convenience!

Because of its cool, crisp acidity, this wine is great with fried Italian foods like artichokes served with an aioli sauce. The freshness of the glass will refresh the palette from the heavy bites. Its lightness also does well light seafood and white meats. A great summer wine!
