Food Pairings for Attilio Contini Rosé Blend Valle Del Tirso Igt Nieddera Rosato
It's fine, but it came in second to a Ventana Rhone knockoff in blind tasting. I liked it better at first, but it's a little less layered than the Ventana, and not a long finish. It didn't open up a lot after decanting and sitting, either, which is why the Ventana beat it out in the end. There's a lot of good stuff in the price range ($12) so I probably won't go out of my way if this is what it's like in supposedly the best year ever for the Rhone.
My personal favorite of the chardonnays I tasted tonight. Aromas of creme fraiche and pear. Flavors of pear, apple, sour cream,and grapefruit pith on the finish, which is of medium length. Very fresh and subtle, this is a wine for those who don't like the big California style. Excellent value.

Raspberry and cherry, mostly. Nice, not very complex, but I think a good value at under $12. Should be even better with a little more time.
Not a bad buy at 12 clams, but pretty simple in flavor profile. Nice to see some acid in this ripe year, but the body of this wine seems a bit thin to hold it.
Simple, but friendly - expect to meet all the berry basics of a nice Rhône. Great for drinking without food.
Very nice - smooth, fruit forward, just plain agreeable! Great value for $12.

Opaque at the core with a brilliant ruby rim. Aromas of freshly picked cherry, black raspberry, boysenberry jam and violet fill the nose.
