Allegretto Rosae, a curious Monastrell and Gewürztraminer rosé

Allegretto Rosae, curioso rosado de Monastrell y Gewürztraminer

ALLEGRETTO ROSAE, MADE BY THE VALENCIAN WINERY, LA VIÑA, STANDS OUT FROM THE RANGE OF ECONOMIC ROSÉS THAT WE ARE USED TO SEEING ON SUPERMARKET SHELVES, THANKS TO ITS ORIGINAL COMBINATION OF MONASTRELL AND GEWÜRZTRAMINER GRAPES

Granada, October 21, 2019. – Allegretto Rosae is a curious semi-sweet rosé produced by Bodega La Viña, a Valencian winery located in the municipality of La Front de la Figuera and belongs to the Anecoop Bodegas group. Founded in 1945, Bodega La Viña operates under the Protected Designation of Origin Valencia.  It has 2,400 hectares of vineyards, the vines of which produce around 11.3 million kilos of grapes annually, with varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Macabeo, Merlot, Monastrell, Syrah, Tempranillo and Tintorera.

Allegretto Rosae 2018 is a youthful semi-sweet rosé.  In appearance, the wine is clear, pale in intensity and pale pink in colour showing hardly any legs/tears, and any that are visible glide quickly down the sides of the glass.  On the nose, the aroma is clean, of medium (-) intensity and is predominantly fruity. It is simple and only primary aromas can be detected.  There are aromas of sweet red fruits such as raspberry and strawberry, floral aromas of blossom and tropical fruits aromas such as lychee, perhaps due to the presence of Gewürztraminer.

Allegretto Rosae, curioso rosado de Monastrell y GewürztraminerOn the palate, Allegretto Rosae 2018 is a very simple wine that first presents sweet and fruity flavour characteristics.  It is semi-sweet and has a low level of acidity; both these features reflect the sunny and Mediterranean Valencian climate.  It contains only 10.5% alcohol which suggests that the proportion of Monastrell is lower, hence it is light in body with medium (-) intensity of primary flavour characteristics. There are red fruit flavours such as raspberry and strawberry, and notes of tropical fruit flavours such as lychee. The finish is short.

In conclusion, the quality level is acceptable.  The economically low price may make us doubtful as to its drinkability, but it is a tolerable wine suitable for everyday drinking.  Undoubtedly this is a summer wine because it is necessary to serve the Allegretto Rosae very cold, and it would combine well with salads, cold soups, light meals or simply as an appetizer.
