TASTING NOTE: This is a unique, exciting blend of Pinot Noir with the aromatic white grape Arneis (which is native to Piedmont in Italy). You can expect it to suggest red fruit, citrus and herbs. Crisp, dry, and low in alcohol, this rosé is just about the perfect sipping wine, but it will have the structure to pair with barbecued chicken breast or grilled seafood. Price $ 19.95
