Compare & Contrast - 2011 Rossese Galeae, Ka*Mancine

You know how it is. You are on holiday, you find an interesting wine and taste it during this kind of conditions...

And you think it is great! The sun in your face, a platter of Italian delicacies and a glass of young, juicy Rossese - who wouldn't find it to be a great wine at that time and place?

And you think about it. You really liked the Rossese´s from Ka*Mancine, and Maurizio was a great guy.
So you order a 6 bottle pack of the same wine you drank on the terrace above. You get it home. Now it is autumn in Sweden and it looks like this... Its 8 degrees Celsius outside.

And you open one...or two bottles - how will it perform now...?

2011 Rossese di Dolceacqua Galeae, Ka*Mancine
Its like drinking summer all over again! :-) An open, juicy, fresh nose with notes of lingonberry bushes, rosehips, cranberries, rosemary and a touch of coffe powder. Very, very good. A salivating, fresh, upfront nose with depth to it.
The taste is young, fresh and spicy with notes of lingonberries, dried rosemary, red apple peel, forest floor and a hint of white pepper. Drinking as great as on a terrace in Cogoleto, Italy! I´ll have to order another 6 bottle pack...
