Nine delicious rosés over £20 for summer 2018

3. Scalunera Etna Rosato 2017

The style: Dry rosé
The medal: Gold
The score: 93
The price:
Approx £20-30
The sugar content: 2.1 g/l
The ABV: 13.5%
The closure: Cork

The taste: For those not yet convinced by the successful combination of volcanic soils and Vitis vinifera, try this rosato from the slopes of Sicily’s Mount Etna, which is as pale as anything from Provence, but has its own distinctive personality. Expect raspberry and peaches, along with a touch of tangy pink grapefruit, as well as a mouthwatering salty edge, bringing an extra layer of character, while drawing out the flavours so the taste lingers long after the wine has been swallowed. A delicious find in the expanding world of upmarket rosés.
