Chapel Hill Sangiovese Rosé 2013

Pretty little red fruited number: sweet strawberry meets tart cranberry - a theme consistent throughout the wine. There's a hint of the familiar (to me at least) 'rhubarb and custard' boiled lolly of my youth.

More red fruit presents on the palate, a little coulis sitting in front of a creamy palate punctuated with a little spice and more of that tart cranberry acid. Drying with good savoury tannin, yet also serves up a hint of sweetness as a counterpoint. Drink, don't think. Serve chilled and enjoy. 89
