Writer Amanda Mactas includes Calasole Vermentino and Castello del Poggio Sweet Rose in a roundup of the best wines to drink during the summertime. She calls the Vermentino “a summer barbecue’s best friend having citrus flavors, along with green melon, minerals and white flowers.” She also mentions how Sweet Rose has “a surprisingly low ABV at 7%, making it easy to drink all day long, with fruity notes of peach, pomegranate and cantaloupe.” She includes bottle images of both bottles and links back to their websites.
Castello del Poggio SweetRosé – While you can never have too much rosé in the summertime (or anytime for that matter), it’s always nice to switch it up and try something new. That’s what you will experience with this sweet rosé, which has a surprisingly low ABV at 7%, making it easy to drink all day long. Fruity notes of peach, pomegranate and cantaloupe hit your tongue, making it a classic pairing for fish, pasta salads, and rice dishes.
– Celebrity brand wines aren’t always all they’re cracked up to be, but with the debut of Bon Jovi’s rosé last summer, we’ve learned to keep an open mind. One of our favorite crooners, John Legend, teamed up with Napa Valley’s Raymond Vineyards to create LVE, a delicious, light rosé using grapes from Côtes de Provence. Comprised of 60% Grenache, 25% Cinsault and 15% Syrah, the limited-edition wine promotes notes of peach blossom, raspberry and apricot, without being overly sweet.
Cavit Sweet Red – This is not your typical red wine. With sweet reds on the rise in the market, this new launch comes right in time for summer. This sweet red wine is a proprietary blend of Merlot and Enantio grapes and is the perfect wine for making sangria! It also pairs well with red meats and spicy dishes.
