PURATO ORGANIC ROSE 2016
Casa Girelli, Italy’ fourth-largest wine company, had for many years been run by the trio of Stefano Girelli, Philippe Marx, and Peter Kosten. In 2005, when Casa Girelli was acquired by Trentino-based Cantina La Vis, the three took the opportunity to start their own company called TWP (The Wine People). Purato is their range of organic wines from Sicily. This is the first vintage of their rose, made 100% from Nero d’Avola, with the grapes coming from some of the best vineyards in the Trapani region. Lively and vibrant, this is a very characterful, bright rose with tons of fresh red berry fruit flavors.
