Bovale Rosado 2018
90 (VM) 89 (I-WR)
Score Publication Review Copy
90 Vinous Media Limpid orange. Pungent red berry and citrus fruit aromas are complemented by a white pepper nuance that adds spicy lift. A chewy, energetic midweight whose tightly focused bitter cherry and red currant flavors deepen and take a sweeter turn on the back half. Finishes firm and quite long, with repeating spiciness and a lingering cherry pit note.

89 International Wine Review Light pink blush. The Bovale offers a floral, spicy nose with notes of roses and a touch of cinnamon. It’s crisp and clean on the attack with original flavors of watermelon, pear, citrus, and poached pear, finishing with a lingering chalkiness.
