Bovale Rosado 2016

Score Publication Review Copy
88 Vinous Media Brilliant pink. Musky red fruits, rhubarb, blood orange and a subtle herb nuance on the nose. Dry, slightly chewy red currant, anise and orange pith flavors take a sweeter turn as the wine opens up. Closes on a dusty mineral note, featuring repeating red fruit character and a touch of bitterness.
Vinous Media; 2017 Rosé Roundup: More Wines than Ever - Part 1 6/6/17
** (excellent) The Washington Post The bobal grape, a relatively obscure Spanish variety, produces some juicy reds and this hearty rosé, with a deep pink color and refreshing acidity to match summer’s full-throttle fare. ABV: 12 percent.

89 Vinous Media Very pale pink. Ripe red berry and floral scents and flavors are accompanied by a spicy note and a subtle herbal quality. Fleshy but lively as well, showing seamless texture, good heft and repeating spiciness on the nicely persistent finish.
