If you think “yuck” when ever you hear the word Rosé...you need to get over it! You’re missing out on some amazing wines. Rosé has made a comeback in the U.S. mostly because there have been numerous wonderful offerings in recent years, and peoples’ tastes are getting more adventurous. If you want to taste a great example of a very versatile Rosé, look no further than the birthplace of modern society.
Semeli Rosé 2007 is a regional wine of Korinthos (Corinth), Greece. Produced at Nemea in the Peloponnese from the grape variety Agiorgitiko (A-your-yee-tiko), this wine has a wonderful deep color, with almost a light purple tone to it. Scents of strawberry and rose petal are followed by crisp and clean berry fruit. Darrell Corti calls it “shockingly good.” Semeli Rosé is a perfect aperitif wine, and goes well with fish, pasta, vegetable dishes, and would make a wonderful offering on the holiday table.
