Masciarelli Colline Teatine 2015 Montepulciano Rosado IGT, $9.34-$12.99, 88 points, poured a salmon orange grading lighter as the wine nears the clear glass bowl.
The nose was floral with excellent strawberry and red raspberry aromas.
Light, crisp, and contrary to what a friend advised, possessed excellent acidity, but she was right about the Montepulciano grape lacking Rosé gravitas.
Flavors reflective of the aromas with hints of watermelon and kiwi with a trailing white pepper were good.
Finished okay on the fading palate and a well-balanced 12.5% alcohol.
