The Vine (April/May 2010)

Martini & Rossi Martini Rosato

Martini & Rossi’s new apertivo, Martini Rosato, is a blend of red and white wines. It has strong Mediterranean aromas including raspberry, lemon and citrus, with soft notes of cloves, nutmeg and spice. The taste of the strong, fruity notes complements the deep, spicy notes. Try it with pomegranate juice to make the signature Martini Melograno. Martini Rosato is available in the U.S. for the first time this spring.
