Palmina Botasea-Rosato di Palmina Usa California Santa Barbara County Dolcetto Nebbiolo Sangiovese and Barbera 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The bright and dark reddish-purple-violet color of 2009 Dolcetto itself has a youthful and lively look that compels a swirl. You can almost hear this wine laughing joyfully as a bouquet of dark berry aromas lift from the wine. Pretty soft tannins and a bright acidity play with the palate, bringing a mélange of fruit notes to the taste buds – blackberries, blueberries, ollaliberries. Another layer of black cherry and Satsuma plums follows, and that sip finishes with lingering hints of black licorice and raw almonds. Extremely drinkable on its own, and delightful with friendly foods like pizza!

Palmina is more than a winery and enoteca. It is a philosophy and it is a passion. It is a strongly held belief that wine is an extension of the plate, a component of a meal and a means to bring people together. Formed by winemaker Steve Clifton in 1995, Palmina is named in honor of Steve’s great friend Paula, who taught him to love cooking, wine and the Italian lifestyle and who was a spark in Steve’s life. After Paula succumbed to breast cancer, Steve found that her given name on her Italian birth certificate was Palmina, and the winery was thus fittingly named. Read less
