Tasting Notes
Bright strawberry and cranberry flavors in the mouth are preceded by the refreshingly firm acidity. This rose has a subtle touch of sweetness and finishes creamy in texture.
Food Pairing Notes
Gioia is an elegant picnic wine to serve with fresh fruit and charcuterie, or fish and lighter fare. It is a perfect sipping or warm weather wine.

This rose of Sangiovese shows a pretty cherry-rose color in the glass. Aromas of McIntosh apples, red plums, wild strawberries and a hint of tobacco. Tart acid on the palate, but it’s balanced by fresh apple, strawberry and watermelon fruit. There’s a kick of pepper, lemon rind and mineral that lingers long onto the finish. Such a fresh wine, it begs for grilled seafood and Greek salads. One of the better domestic roses I’ve had in quite a while.

Just had this great wine with chicken BBQ and it made a lovely outdoor dinner a memorable one. Enjoyed the subtle fruity flavor.

Brought this great wine home after a visit there in July. Waited to open it on Thanksgiving Day to share with family and it was a great hit! Just ordered two more bottles.
