Here’s a rosato with sun blessed Sicilian ripeness and wonderful freshness too. Mouthfilling, juicy and moreish, it fits in effortlessly – at parties, picnics, barbecues – with food or without (and if any wine can sway a non-rosé fan, it’s this one).
If you’re a long-standing customer, the chances are you’ll have come across Scipione Giuliani’s ‘poppy wines’. About 20 years ago, Scipi blew critics away with his original Il Papavero – a humble ‘vino da tavola’ that offered near boundless drinking pleasure and astonishing value for money. Since then, he’s expanded the range, with every new release always offering the discerning drinker plenty of flavour for the money. And this mouthwatering rosé continues that trend. It’s crafted from Nero d’Avola, a southern Italian variety that’s normally used to make big, juicy reds. Scipi sourced his Nero in vineyards planted on slopes overlooking the sea, where cooling breezes contributed to this wine’s irresistible freshness. The perfect aperitif.
