A Quick Word from the Pros

Glasses of Rose at Pizzeria Portofino

Take it from the experts and choose wine wisely for your next outdoor picnic, beach excursion or just a sunny day. Our wine director Richard Hanauer (RPM Steak, RPM Italian, Pizzeria Portofino, and RPM Seafood) schools us on the art of choosing the perfect rosé.
Light & Refreshing, with or without food: Provencal-style rosé is the quintessential rosé and is refreshing and light in color & body. Look for keywords of “Aix-en-Provence” or “Cotes-du-Provence”.
Light vs Dark Colored Rosé: Color can be a great guide in how to choose rosé. The lighter the color the more refreshing, while deeper hues of pink indicate a more complex wine reminiscent of a light bodied red wine.
Pocketbook Friendly Choices: There is never a need to go over budget when you’re buying rosé! Compared to red wines, rosé is often less expensive to produce and price tags often don’t always reflect the quality of the wine inside the bottle. When in doubt, grab a $10-15 bottle of Provencal-style or Italian Rosato such as Fiume di Vino at Pizzeria Portofino.
A Bit About Grapes: You may not be familiar with the grapes used to make your rose, not to worry.  Rosé traditionally comes from the South of France and is made from grapes like Cinsualt, Mourvedre and Grenache which would never appear on a bottle; they only use the name of the place it is from. No need to source from familiar grapes, as they tend to show far less of their expression as a rosé than they would as a red, but most of their characteristics will hold true.
