Rosés seem to be a dime a dozen nowadays, their producers seemingly trying to attract the avocado-toast-brunch crowd. Walter Hansel Winery makes my all-time favorite rosé, but when I went to purchase my usual summer case, guess what: SOLD OUT. What to do? Review. And what did I find? A truly marvelous, delicious rosé at a ridiculously low price. Vinous Media’s Eric Guido reviewed it, La Spinetta’s 2019 Il Rosé di Casanova. He called this Italian beauty “stunning in the glass, wafting up with a seductive bouquet, mixing lime and ripe melon with crushed strawberries. It floods the palate with spicy red fruits, complemented by juicy citrus and brisk acids, which keep the expression wonderfully fresh. The finish is long, as an air of minerals and fresh florals hover above salty minerals which beg you to take another sip.” Yeah. Like he said! This is yummy good and available at $13-$14 per bottle.
