Winemaker's Notes:

A juicy watermelon color with fuschia highlights, the Yalumba Y Series Sangiovese Rose is a complex wine dominated with aromas of fresh fruit, highlighted with fragrant rhubarb, pomegranate, and red apples with a hint of lavender. Refreshing and persistent, the palate is medium bodied with crisp acid and a very dry finish. A rose for grown-ups!
