Mezza di Mezzacorona Rosé Wine paired with Strawberry Shortcake
On the nose, you’ll get hints of mountain rose, fresh cherry, peach and bergamot, while the flavor is intense with delicate bubbles. This fruit-forward style pairs wonderfully with juicy, creamy strawberry shortcake as well as bold, spicy foods, such as a spicy crab roll or kung pao chicken. – winemaker Maurizio Maurizi.
Mezzacorona Rosé 2018 paired with Eggplant Parm
Enjoy a homemade Italian feast with this still, dry rosé wine! Made with Lagrein grapes from the Trentino Aldo Adige region, it’s the perfect match for Italian cuisine. Such as pasta, mushrooms and white grilled meats. Deviating from sparkling wines, Mezzacorona Rosé 2018 offers sumptuous red fruit flavors with a round, lush texture, balanced by excellent acidity. It’s recommended to pair this wine with a heartier classic Italian cuisine like eggplant parmesan You can also enjoy this wine as an aperitif all by itself, says winemaker Maurizio Maurizi.
Rotari Brut Rosé 2014 paired with Salmon
Pop open this elegant, complex offering to celebrate a milestone relationship. Rotari showcases the charming duality of Pinot Noir with a touch of Chardonnay. It has intense flavors, delicate aromas, and persuasive perfumes.
Rotari Rosé is produced in the metodo classico (traditional method) and combines elegance with freshness and purity of fruit. You want to contrast the bright acidity and effervescence by pairing with the delicate fruit aromas of the wine. I recommend pairing this with a rich, fatty fish like salmon – ideally prepared in a crudo style with cilantro and pomegranate seeds. The wine will cut through the richness while matching the freshness of the cilantro and delicate notes of the pomegranate seeds.
Stemmari Rosé 2018 paired with Bruschetta
This rosé is produced using an indigenous Sicilian varietal, Nero d’Avola. Light, a bit dry, medium sweet. This wine pairs best with appetizers like bruschetta and light bites. Host an appetizer potluck with your best friends, open a bottle (or 3) with your best friend. Enjoy a rom-com marathon featuring classics like Pretty in Pink.
