In Italy, rosa wine was initially blended by crushing light grapes with red grapes to produce sparkling pink wine. There are several types of rosé wines that are particularly popular amongst locals throughout Italy: Rosato (very pale pink), Cerasuolo (cherry red), and Ramato (a pink-skinned Pinot Grigio rosa blend). Rosa flows abundantly into wine glasses and is perfect for outdoor entertaining with la famiglia!

Bucatini is a perfect accompaniment to any authentic Italian dish, particularly bucatini with all’amatriciana sauce. While bucatini boasts the same shape of spaghetti noodles, it’s a loving choice for creamy or hearty sauces filled with ripe tomatoes. The reason why?
