A synonym for Prosecco, this Glera is bright, lively, and dry. While Enoteca Bisson is in Chiavari on the Ligurian coast (think Cinque Terra), this wine is produced in partnership with a colleague in Treviso in the heart of the Prosecco region. A fantastic summer-wine.Buy now!
Domaine Lucien Crochet
Sancerre Rosé 2012
Most everyone knows (and loves, it seems) white Sancerre, but many are still surprised to find out that the region also grows Pinot Noir, used for local red and rose wines. This example of Sancerre Rose from Lucien Crochet is the perfect introduction – bright, tart, and completely refreshing.Buy now!
Ciliegiolo Rosé 2012
The importer: “When is a rosé not a rosé? We have struggled with whether to officially classify the Ciliegiolo in this category or whether to present it as a light-colored red wine with lots of character.” However you decide to categorize it, this is another winner from Enoteca Bisson. Only 400 cases for the U.S.
