Rosato Wines


We believe that rosato should be as refreshing as a white wine and as structured as a red


Botasea Rosata di PalminaIf a wine could embody structure, energy and passion it would be Botasea. This beautiful rosato is Chrystal's personal project and her first wine that introduced Steve to her passion for winemaking. As a student at the Universitá di Bologna, Chrystal longed to make a wine that rivaled the classic rosatos she enjoyed in southern Italy: a pink wine that was not only refreshing and light like a white wine, but also had the structure and body of a red wine.

This is a beautiful wine, with a deep yet delicate pink color that seems to glow! It is almost too pretty to taste, but a swirl proves that there is more here than looks. Rose petal and wild, just-ripe strawberry aromas mingle with dried orange peel and hints of cherry juice. Brisk and refreshing to the taste buds, summertime watermelon, raspberry, mulberry and peach notes lead to refined tannins reminiscent of red rhubarb and garden spice of mace and sage. Flavorful nuances of hibiscus and red plum linger on the uplifting and zesty finish. Dreamy.

Serve chilled just to cellar temperature to fully enjoy the aromas and flavors of Rosato. Delightful as an aperitif, this wine pairs beautifully with spicy food, barbecue, picnic lunches or just a good book on a warm summer day. Our featured recipe is Spicy Red Pesto with Shrimp.
