This dry, pale pink wine from one of the top producers of Chianti is a perfect summer wine for classy outdoor entertaining. It's a crisp wine with distinct cherry character from its component sangiovese and merlot grapes. It offers a light, rose-scented aroma and a touch of rosehips in the flavor. A complex, character-filled  wine for a dry rose , it should be served quite cold.
