Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Editor's Choice: “Delicate aromas of peony and jasmine ride over a core of pinkgrapefruit on the nose of this rosato made from Nero d’Troia.It’s saline and savory on the medium-bodied palate, with a tense line of mineral and citrus extending rounder notions of peach blossom and melon.”

“The Rosé di LuLú is made from 50-year-old Nero di Troia vinesgrown on the sandy limestone soils of the high altitude single vineyard Vigna de Trono. Fermented 20 days and aged 5 months in stainless steel it offers faint red fruit aromas with floral rose petal notes. It has pomegranate and light cherry flavors, lovely balance and a long finish with good extract. Lovely substantial wine.”
