.ETNAROSATO2015   Murgo            Etna Rosato 

Bright orange-tinged pink. Stone fruit and banana on the fresh nose. Then clean and fresh with simple, straightforward flavors of spicy red berries lifted by the noteworthy, vibrant acidity. I found this to lack a little character, a rarity for Murgo wines, which are usually quite flavorful.

BRUT-ROSE-MURGO2012   Murgo            Brut Rosé Metodo Classico Murgo          

Bright copper-tinged pink. Knockout aromas and flavors of red berries, nectarine, minerals, herbs and orange peel. Creamy but with juicy verve and lovely floral lift extending the stone and citrus fruit flavors on the long back end. Outstanding; this is the best Rosato bubbly from Murgo I have memory of.
