Benazzoli Tecla Rosé (Bardolino, Veneto, Italy ~ Lake Garda Region
Description: A brilliant salmon-pink in colour, the nose is a delightful flight of crushed rose petals, fruity scents of wild strawberries and raspberries, and delicate splashes of citrus. On the palate it is taut and fresh, restrained red berry flavours with a hint of blood orange and rosehip, silky yet clean and crisp with a hint of pepper and a nice acidity that lifts the finish. Tecla is a versatile wine that knows how to elegantly accompany simple dishes, such as light pasta dishes with tomato or cream, as well as more elaborate dishes like pan fried scallop with herbs and a hint of truffle. It is also lovely with charcuterie and mild cheeses. It is the ultimate date and picnic wine.
For the full tasting experience, we have made the other three wines available.
