WELCOME BACK!!! We are so excited that a new importer has come on board to bring us the ‘Vespa’ Barbera Rosato. Made by a small, traditional estate in Piedmont, Mariuccia Borio is a Barbera specialist who hand picks all the fruit and makes elegant classic wines (that’s her as a girl in the pink dress in the 1950’s---love it!). This is her Castlèt Rosé, which she calls 'La vie en rose. A scent you catch with your eyes closed, but only if you know how to listen from the bottom of your heart will the music of a far-off band reach your ears. It’s a country dance with the women who scent of lavender and fleurs-de-lis, and the young men are clean-shaven and wear freshly laundered shirts. The girls on the Vespa are growing up to be women. Their looks and bows are still the same as when they were little girls, but the rose-pink is changing them. There’s a promise and there’s a hope in their still shy eyes. Pink is happiness, pink is like dawn turning to day. I’ve left the deep red of my Barbera grapes behind in the press. I’m the fruit of the soft pressing of the bunches. I spring surprises by subtraction. I have no rules and I love people who look to the future...'  Serve with pork, chicken, pasta with tomato-based sauces, salmon, tuna or fine cheeses.
