Rosé from Nebbiolo grapes.

Lake

La vie en Rosé.

I was in beautiful Stresa, by Lago Maggiore, in the Piedmont region of Italy and drank Lambrusco from Emilia Romagna region with my favorite Pizza.

I broke my rule nr.1: drink local!

Quick fix: I had to go local.

About 50 km from Stresa you find 2 DOCG: Ghemme and Gattinara. And a DOC Colline Novaresi.

Rosato is a perfect wine for lunch.

And from this district you have plenty of choices.

Nebbiolo grapes make a Rosé for grown-ups.

Salmon pink, fruity, savoury and food-friendly.

Notes of orange peel, strawberries, raspberries and maraschino cherries.

Food pairing: match the color! Grilled seafood and salmon is top!

Summer food. Fancy Salads. Spicy Indian and Thai.

Fresh tomato based dishes such Caprese and Ceviche.
