I’ve been wanting to try some of the Globerati wines I see at Whole Foods as they always intrigue me with cute labels and the wine is usually described in a way that just makes it seem like liquid fun. I could really use some more fun in my life so I bought the Globerati 2015 Rosé as it was on sale at WF for $6.
The Globerati 2015 Rosé comes in at 12% ABV which is my preferred percentage for weeknight drinking when I know I need to get up on time the next day. I don’t know much about the wine, just that the fruit comes from Puglia and Sicily. It’s a blend of grapes. I chilled the wine down to about 50 degrees and I think I should have chilled it further. This will certainly be getting a Corkcicle if I purchase it again. I used a stemless white wine glass for tasting. I didn’t detect much of scent when opening the wine. The wine is lovely light salmon shade.
Globerati 2015 Rosé is delicate. It uses the word to describe itself right on the package. The nose is light with strawberry and peach. The taste is also very light with minerals, strawberry, peach, and hints of roasted tomatoes and lemon. In this respect, it reminds me of a watered down version of my beloved Grifone Rosé. There is not much finish to speak of and the acid is balanced. It did taste a bit wine-y when it opened up and I think that’s a good indicator more chilling is needed.
I do enjoy a delicate Rosé when it has more of a strawberry and cream flavor to it. This one isn’t bad, it’s just not good either. If I get it again, I’ll make sure to chill it further. As of right now, it’s getting an 84 point rating and possible re-buy to experiment with the chilling to see how it is when it’s cold, cold, cold.
