Giolitti Delicatessen and Marketplace is swiftly moving into the rosé wine season. Rosé consumption is prevalent in warmer, springtime months and summer temperatures due to its refreshing body featuring semi-sweet floral notes. 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!
Origins of Rosa Wine in Italian History
Throughout Italian history, rosato (or rosa) has been consumed by locals for centuries. From Sicily’s southern shores and many regions beyond, rosa is consumed daily as a light, free-flowing wine during lunch hours and family dinners. At Giolitti’s Delicatessen and Marketplace, we’ll have numerous imported bottles of rosé (or rosa) for all of your springtime entertaining needs on a seasonal basis. This light, pink wine boasts a tart aftertaste with a crisp sweetness that flows easily amongst family laughter and conversations.
How Does Italian Rosa Differ from French Rosé?
Italian rosa differs from French rosé in many ways. Most notably, Italian rosa is considered the best alcoholic beverage for year-round consumption due to its light body. Italy’s rosa’s come in a wide variety of hues, from ultra-light pink (rosato) to extra dark cerasuolos (cherry red). This diversity creates a broad spectrum of rosa wines that vary in flavor on the palette: from soft florals to bold fruits and even herbal-bodied blends.
