Not quite the rosé we casually bring to the beach — this is more of a show-off rosé. Rosy on the nose, this wine is fragrant with strawberry aromas, followed by a palate of tart raspberry, blood orange, and a touch of salinity. A fierce rosé with an orange-tinged color that you might not expect. Just delicious.

Amorotti is a young winery, run by Gaetano Carboni, that has deep roots in the farming history of Abruzzo — dating back to 1521. In fact, Gaetano’s grandfather was the first Italian exporter of extra virgin olive oil to the US. Today, that family tends vineyards that have been in the family for over a century. Their cellar was refurbished in 1992 and in 2016 their first vintage was released. In addition to producing wine (and olive oil), Gaetano and his wife run an agriturismo with a focus on contemporary art where they host artists-in-residence programs.
