Larchago Rosé, Rioja 2015

Perfect for lunch or dinner, Larchago's 2015 Rosé from Spain's Rioja region is such an easy summer sip.  I love Spanish wines made from tempranillo grapes, so it's no surprise that I find this 100% tempranillo rosé to be worthy of keeping in stock for summer entertaining.

Its rich salmon color hints at the notes of fresh raspberries and strawberries. Furthermore, its low acidity makes it suitable for hors d'oeuvres, such as canapés, antipasti and cheeses. 

Enjoy a glass or two of this flavorful wine at your Fourth of July gathering or simply because you feel like having some rosé this summer.  You might as well pick up a second bottle to keep on hand because it is a good bargain, and a lovely vintage.
