The best Italian Rosè wines in the event organized by Cucina & Vini.
In the splendid setting of Palazzo Brancaccio in Rome, the eighth edition of BereRosa was staged: an event organized by the magazine Cucina & Vini to disseminate and enhance the production of Italian rosè wines.
In Italy, for years there has been a decline (in general quantitative terms) of the production of these wines, despite the ever increasing demand from the public, especially in summer. This phenomenon is linked to a decisive change on the part of the producers who, in order to respond to the growing needs of the market, have turned towards a higher quality level than in the past.
This is how new and more refined wines are born, from the “classic” vines , but also from grapes that were not usually used for vinification in rosè.
In this regard, we have already dealt with these topics last year in our Italian Rosè Wines Special, and we were very pleased to participate in a manifestation of BereRosa’s reach: about seventy wineries, with hundreds of labels to taste.

The lion’s share, at a numerical level, was naturally made by the three regions that have always been leaders in the italian production of rosè: namely Puglia, Abruzzo and Veneto, but also the others, albeit with a smaller number of companies , have proposed very interesting products.
In support of the wine event, some food companies have proposed special goodies for catering to accompany the tastings and that have contributed to the success of the event. Despite the very hot day in July, it’s been a pleasure to taste a good rosé, accompanied by some delicacies, sitting in the shade of the large trees that adorn the beautiful garden of Palazzo Brancaccio.

Among the “still” rosés we found the following particularly interesting:
