Don't stop drinking Rose just because it's cold outside!

Rosé has the reputation as a wine that is only to be enjoyed ice cold on a patio in the summer but it is actually very enjoyable as an aperitif wine year round. And this Rosé is fantastic and a steal!

2020 Tormaresca Calafuria Rosato, made from Negroamaro grapes in Puglia (the heel of the boot of Italy) is only $12 and it is just delicious. Eric Guido of Vinous agrees with us, saying: "The 2020 Rosato Salento Calafuria shows the quality of Negroamaro in Rosé form, opening with a dusty display of dried flowers and spice, then evolving further to reveal notes of chamomile-laced crushed yellow apple and sweet melon. This is soft-textured, energized by zesty acids that combine with a harmonious inner sweetness and a hint of effervescence to create a fully satisfying expression. Inner rose and young strawberry linger long though the juicy finale. 91 points."

And here is a recipe for excellent pesto to serve with it: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/pesto-recipe2-1948775
