It’s peak summertime, which also means it’s full-on rosé season! In search of ideal selections for summer refreshment, we venture beyond the traditional pale Provençal pour and explore Italian rosato, especially those from the Southern Italian region of Puglia. Made from an array of grapes, with varied intensities and flavor and aroma profiles, there’s a world of stunning Puglian rosato, or vino rosa, worth your consideration.
