Bertani BertaRose 2017
Warning: no matter how much of this grey-matter-expanding, serotonin-flooding, wine-market-exploding uber-deal that you buy, you WILL run out of it 3-4 times faster than you anticipated. At this jaw-dropping price, however, for a classic rose producer like Bertani, you won’t even trip about it -- so get AS MUCH as you can for rapid consumption all summer long. $10!! How is it even possible!!!?
Anyway, WHEW!! Hey, we gotta give ya the straight dope -- this is an outrageous buy. So, you ask, whattsup wit dis? Bertarosé from Bertani (near Verona) has been produced since the 30s (!), and the winery was founded in 1857. If you’ve ever been to northern Italy, the vineyards are inland from the lovely Lake Garda.
** Did you get some? Cool. It’s going to FLY fly fly out of here....
Back to the wine --- marvelous, clean, pure, cool-drink-of-water, hyper-refreshing goodness is what this is -- a wine that, a bit harrowingly, actually, can be drunk with utter disdain for common sense. A quaffer of the finest order, it sings its light, lilting pomegranates, cranberry and wildflower notes straight to your taste buds. Crisp, fresh and brisk, there’s good balance and (as ever!), easy-drinking deliciousness. What else can we say? It’s a STEAL on a fine rosé, period!!
Get some before it disappears forever...
