Portofino DOC Rosé Magnum 2020, Rosafino
This classy, rare and very special rosé has much in common with Provence Cru Classé. It comes from a tiny vineyard of old Grenache vines in hills overlooking the Mediterranean, above the seaside village of Portofino on the Italian Riviera. It has a pretty rose-tinted peach colour, and a mellow bouquet of red apples and honey. The palate is dry, fresh and soft-textured, with hints of wild strawberry and nectarine, a juicy, rounded personality and a long, fresh finish. There are only 41 hectares of vines in Portofino, meaning that these wines are very hard to find.
