Food Pairings for Villa Tonino Rosé Blend
This wine showed rich red fruits, yeasty baking bread and pepper on the nose. Juicy raspberry but not much else on the palate and a little dry on the finish. In comparison to the previous vintage, this wine falls short on both body and depth. Very drinkable and good for the price but not a repeat purchase for me.

External Reviews for Villa Tonino Rosé Blend
(100% tempranillo, raised in older French and American oak barriques) Deep ruby. Pungent aromas of redcurrant, cherry pit and dried flowers, with hints of vanilla and cola. Shows very impressive complexity for the price, offering sweet red and dark fruit flavors and a hint of musky herbs. The spicy finish repeats the cherry note and lingers nicely. There are loads of Riojas out there selling for three times as much that don't match this wine for sheer fruit or complexity. One of the best $7 wines you'll find from Spain. The nose is bright, medicinal and floral, while the palate is loud and peppy, with sweet red fruit flavors that sport a candied coating. Fresh, tasty and simple, which is what it should be. 60% Bobal and 40% Tempranillo. - M.S. Light, fresh and firm, this brisk red offers berry, cherry and leaf flavors with a hint of vanilla. This is modest but lively. Tempranillo. Drink now. 10,000 cases imported. -TM
The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc Reserva is a great value. It exhibits a fragrant bouquet of mineral, passion fruit, and citrus. This leads to a mouth-watering, vibrant, lengthy Sauvignon that way over-delivers for its humble price. Tabali is producing high quality wines from the newly developing cool-climate region of Limari.
The 2008 Chardonnay Reserva Especial shows off the potential for Chardonnay in Limari. It delivers Cote de Beaune like aromatics of mineral, toast, white fruits, and hazel nut. Elegant, intense, with lively natural acidity, this lengthy effort may we... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Chardonnay wine from in Chile. 2008 Tabali Chardonnay Reserve Especial 750ml
Fresh, dry, and approachable, this rosé is made by a talented mother-daughter team. You'll love their style; travel to the south of France and you'll find the locals drinking rosés just like this one.
Color: dark red color. Nose: intense nose with notes of black berries and spicy aromas like pepper. Mouth: This medium to full-bodied wine is still yet very fresh and elegant and allies unctuous tannins to flavors or red and black berries with a touchspice.
The Tortoise Hill range derives its name from one of Glen Carlou’s most distinctive landmarks: a rocky hill in the shape of a giant tortoise. Created to add quality and enjoyment to contemporary living, the two vibrantly fruity wines are backed by the Glen Carlou promise of consistent quality. This wine is a rich strawberry pink with a hint of cranberry red. On the nose there's delicate rose petal aromas, ripe raspberry and cherry - very clean and fresh. On the palate soft acidity balances the clean dark fruit and ripe watermelon flavours. The finish is soft and dry with lingering dark berry fruits. A lovely light aperitif wine, enjoyed by itself or with a summer salad.
