2020 Lileana Rosato di Barbera
Our 2020 Lileana is a first for us. In previous vintages, this popular rosé has been made from Sangiovese. Last harvest we had the opportunity to acquire some Barbara from the South Fork Vineyard and this rosé was vinted and bottled. This is about as crisp and refreshing a rosé as we've had. On the nose strawberry and Pink Lady apple is followed by a touch of cotton candy. On the palate a pleasing punch of Barbara's classic acidity will carry through, along with notes of strawberry and cranberry. This delightful rosé is perfect to pair with a cheese plate, casear salad, or by the pool.
